This is the primary way vegetable salad is made in Cameroon. A bunch of vegetables are chopped, then laid on a tray/salad bowl decoratively. The salad cream/dressing is absolutely to die for. It is extra creamy, sweet and tangy.

  • 3 cups shredded carrots 2 large carrots
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ onion
  • 2 hardboiled eggs
  • 1 avocado
For the salad dressing
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (approx 239 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil of choice - I used corn oil
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Chop all the un-chopped  vegetables into bite-size pieces. Also chop the eggs and avocado. Arrange them all on a tray/bowl in any pattern you like.

  2. To make the salad cream: Combine all the ingredients and whisk until smooth. You could equally blend them or put in a container with a tight lid and shake until smooth.

  3. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

1. Instead of cabbage, you could use lettuce if you prefer.

2. For a healthier salad dressing, combine equal parts of vinegar, oil and honey. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
