My former husband was Filipino and this is a recipe of his mother's creation.I learned to cook a lot of Filipino dishes and this one has become a favorite among all my friends and family. It's a great main dish salad in the summer time or as a take along for pot luck any time.It is a staple during Christmas Eve when I prepare all Filipino dishes for my sons who as well as myself never met their Lola; but I hope in some small way I can honor her buy passing it on down to her grandsons .
