My family dined out at Yummy Restaurant during the festival in our place.  They ordered pork ribs while I ordered fried boneless milk fish and rocca salad. I am a sucker of anything salad so this is my home-made version.

For this salad, I added iceberg lettuce to my arugula that I harvested in my home garden because it is just few. I got a jar of walnuts that is staying for long time now in the pantry so I made it a candy and added some of it to this salad while I keep the rest to munch when I’ll work on my projects.

I also have parmesan cheese left in the pantry so it is perfect for this salad.

The vinaigrette I used is a simple mixture of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

For the Salad:

  1. Rocket  or Arugula – you may use other variety of lettuce if arugula is not available
