Ensaladang Mustasa (Fresh Mustard Greens Salad)

Ensaladang Mustasa

The other day, our ulam was Tinapang Bangus and I was thinking of what to pair with it. Most of the time, when our ulam is dry — like fried or grilled —  I like to pair it with soup or sautéed vegetables but this time I was thinking it would be nice to pair it with something fresh. So I made Ensaladang Mustasa.

Ensaladang Mustasa is a salad made of fresh mustard greens, tomatoes, onions, and salted egg. I made a Sweet Calamansi Dressing for it using calamansi juice, patis, and brown sugar.

This is usually tossed in the dressing one hour before serving but I kinds like it better fresh than soggy. So I toss this in the dressing when we’re about to eat.

Do you make Ensaladang Mustasa too?
