Sabrina's Petchay Caesar Salad Recipe

This Petchay Caesar Salad Recipe is to die for! Or should we say to live longer for?

Always love caesar salads! Not too fond of romaine and regular lettuce because it doesn't hold up in the Philippines' hot weather! Often salad is limp and uninviting once served. Not to mention it's quite pricey for 90 to 120 pesos a bundle versus 10 to 20 pesos a bundle for local petchay! Its nutrition value is virtually nil compared to incredible benefits of petchay! A great budget and savings for all homes and food catering businesses too.

Check out Sabrina's homegrown Petchay Caesar recipe, for a healthy and glam gourmet twist to our usual petchay!


8 heads of petchay leaves, washed and torn into 3 inch pieces
1 cup chopped tomatoes
2 cups croutons

For dressing:
1 egg
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp calamansi
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp crushed n chopped garlic
4 dashes black pepper
1 tsp coco sugar


In bowl for dressing: Beat together 1 egg, 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp calamansi, 1 tbsp fish sauce or patis, 1 tsp crushed n chopped garlic, 4 dashes black pepper, and 1 tsp coco sugar. Then add some crushed croutons and beat, till you have a nice consistency.

Then in a bowl layer your petchay and tomatoes, drizzle some sauce and toss in. Then add croutons and Parmesan drizzle!

Keep dressing aside and serve with salad.
