Your Ubod just leveled up!

One usually sees and eats the heart of palm (ubod) in fresh spring rolls (lumpia). Due to its sweet taste, it is also a favorite ingredient for salads.

Eden Nature Park and Resort’s Vista Restaurant has come up with a refreshing take on Ubod and made it the main ingredient for Ubod Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette!

Sweet oranges, tangy pineapples, shrimps, tomatoes and ubod are slightly marinated in pineapple juice then drained and served in a bowl then sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Sweet basil is also topped to add that “herby” flavor.

Ubod Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette--- refreshing, healthy and innovatively Pinoy.
