Eating too much delicacies can pose to be a health threat to Rabbits…
In fact, we should detox our digestive system once in a while like doing some spring cleaning.
As you all know, Salads are a ‘rare’ commodity in the CBD area as Chinese prefers eating meat. Moreover, even if you see salads being sold, they cost a BOMB! Yes, they literally will bomb your wallet and burst your lunch budget.. Be prepared to spend at least S$6 and above for a bowl of satisfying salad.
Da Rabbit has tried the more budget salad from the bridge linked to Shenton House. It cost approximately slightly below S$5.00 if you stick to the standard veggies but it is not satisfying at all because the choices are pretty limited. Da Rabbit prefers eating the S$7++ salad from Food Garden @ Asia Square with fresher and hence greener
GRASS vegetables and Da Rabbit loves the salad there as they have cous cous which makes the salad delectable.
However eating ATAS Grass everyday might not seem to be the solution. Hence Da Rabbit, together with her
comrades colleagues have decided to have a ‘pot luck’ salad lunch.
Da Rabbit is in charge of buying the Lettuce for salad whereas her other colleagues would be responsible for other ingredients i.e. eggs, ham, fruits, dressing etc. It would be a blast!
As mentioned in the previous post, Da Rabbit has sinned greatly by patronising Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks on her way to visit NTUC to get her Lettuce… 🙁

Fine, Da Rabbit not only has butter fingers, but her head is made of butter too 🙁

Dummies’ Guide to Salad Making
#1: Wash the Lettuce by soaking it in water for a few minutes before rinsing it for a few times. Then using your hands, tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces before placing them into your lunch box / salad bowl as salad base. This is the staple salad base which fills your stomach
#2: Boil the eggs in water till they are hard-boiled. Da Rabbit’s colleague shared with her that perfectly cooked eggs will not slip off your chopsticks when you try to lift them out from the pot with the chopsticks.
#3: Pare the Fruits (Apples and Pears) with a fruit parer to remove the skin. Nowadays, the skin of apples are coated with thick layers of wax in order to prevent pests from invading them.
#4: Cut your fruits into cubes
#5: Slice your picnic ham with a knife
#6: Pour all ingredients into a salad bowl / your lunch box
#7: Add some salad dressing to taste
#8: Mix Well
#9: Bon Appetit! *YEEEESSSSSS!!*
