Foodie at Home Challenge
And so, in my last two recipe posts, I shared about Shopee's "Foodie at Home Challenge" where I came up with three dishes using fresh ingredients purchased through the Shopee app:
  1. Japanese-styled Honey-Sake Pork Ribs with Asparagus using Airfryer,
  2. Steamed Herbal Chicken, and 
  3. Pumpkin and Beetroot Salad with Feta Cheese (see below).

FYI: This is a collaboration with Shopee, so do look out for my exclusive Shopee Promo Code for you at the end of this recipe.

Overall, I was impressed by how fresh the ingredients were. Service was reliable and I really like how convenient it was to have all my fresh groceries delivered in just a few clicks!

Pumpkin and Beetroot Salad with Feta Cheese
Salad for us is usually a mish mash of whatever we can find in the kitchen, so here's my homemade Pumpkin Beetroot Salad with Feta Cheese.

I usually love to incorporate various colours in my salads not only because it looks aesthetically more pleasing, but also because they are known to contain a greater variety of nutrition. For instance, beetroot which stands out its deep red colour helps to lower blood pressure. For my veggie base, I like to pick some red spinach whenever I can too.

Nuts are also a staple in my homemade salads. Walnuts, pine nuts or pecans are great. A different texture definitely helps to break the monotony. Otherwise, I feel like a cow eating grass. Who agrees? 😂

The beetroot and pumpkin in this recipe were ordered from Shopee's QQMart seller. Love their service. The products are very fresh, just read their online reviews if you don't believe me! 😜

60g salad vegetables
300g pumpkin, sliced
120g beetroot, sliced
