Cebu Food Blogger - Have you tried eating an ampalaya or bitter gourd salad? You would probably ick just the thought of eating this bitter vegetable. And how much more if it is turned into a vegan salad? Well, you will never despise ampalaya after you have tasted this sweet salad. Yes, you read it right!

I myself is an ampalaya eater. I really love vegetables. I remember my mom making her special salad during holidays and special occasions at home. So I gave her a call for her ampalaya salad appetizer.

For nutrition, studies say that ampalaya is rich in vitamins C and A, beneficial folate, fiber, potassium, some iron and zinc too.

Scientific name is momordica charantia.
