Lusog Notes

This salad is a source of vitamin A which helps maintain normal vision and healthy skin. It also has iron needed in the formation of red blood cells that distribute oxygen to the rest of the body.

Chef's Tip

The reserved syrup makes the consistency of the mayonnaise thinner and easier to mix with the other ingredients. It also adds additional moisture to the salad.
