Ensaladang Kulitis

The other day, together with my colleagues, we had lunch at Rustica-Concepcion, Tarlac. One of the dish they ordered is the Ensaladang Kangkong (I didn't take a photo of it. Nakakahiya.)

When all of the order was served, I remember one dish I made with kulitis the other week. They are look very similar.

Aside from stir-fry, here is another easy-to-do recipe using kulitis - Ensaladang Kulitis.

Ensaladang Kulitis

ENSALADANG KULITIS
You will need:
About 300 grams kulitis leaves (Chinese Spinach), blanched
Green mango, cut into strips 4-5 pieces tomato, chopped
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
1-2 tbsp shrimp paste or alamang
1 can sardines in oil, drained

Here's how to do it:
In a bowl, mix tomato, mango, onion and shrimp paste. Set aside.

In a separate or serving bowl, lay the blanched kulitis, top with the prepared tomato-mango mixture and sardines.

This is perfect paired with fried or inihaw na isda and steamed rice, then you will eat with bare hands.

  2. Looks yummy. I might look too dumb by asking this but can I buy kulitis at the local market? Or probably SM?

  4. I know how we bloggers are so tempted to take pictures .... I smiled when you said "nakakahiya"... I felt that a lot in the US since I felt they were NOT used to it! Although, with Pinoy friends, I really asked them that I would!

    Your ensalada really looks good!

  6. Yum! Ang sarap naman ng ensalada! Fave ko yung merong fresh pechay at seaweed, "lato" ata ang name dito, pero sa amin sa province ang tawag namin "arurusip". Naku, sarap ng kain, especially pag nakakamay! Haha! :-)

    1. I don't know the name of that seaweed here pero gusto ko din ung ar-arusip or arurusip. May nakikita ako dito sa market pero natatakot ako na bumili. Di kasi ako sure kung saan galing yun. Miss ko na din kumainn nun.

    1. Some called it spinach but it looks different from the one sold in the supermarkets. Some called it chinese spinach. This usually grows in the backyard especially during rainy season.

  9. Yummy!!! Looks so bright and fresh. Natawa ako when you said nahiya ka to take a photo. I guess makapal talaga face ko, coz I would usually say "WAIT, picture muna!" to whomever I'm eating with. Lol.
