  • This is one of my favorite salads to make.  It’s quick, easy and very nutritious and delicious, too.  It has a sweet and sour flavor that adds a crunch with every bite. It’s perfect for a picnic on a hot summer day.

    Directions:

    1. In a bowl, whisk together the orange juice, yogurt, mayonnaise, calamansi juice, and sugar.
    2. Add the cabbage, carrots, turnips, apple, celery, and grapes.  Mix well to make sure that everything is covered with the dressing.
    3. Put in a sealed container and refrigerate.
    4. Served best when chilled so make sure to bring a cooler with you to put the salad in as you travel to your picnic destination.
