Salad is one of the most popular side dishes eaten in Nigeria, usually with rice, pasta or alone.

Even as people are becoming more aware of the importance of including vegetables in their meals, salad is a quick-to-prepare and readily available alternative to add to the menu.

The process of making salad is quite simple but the truth is not every one can prepare it. Knowing the right quantity of each vegetable to include affects the overall taste so you must get it right.

Today we have a short video to show you how to get it done properly.
