Diapoint Texas Salad Recipe
There are many great cafes in Dubai. One in particular is known for its salads.
Much to my surprise, the last time I was there I saw they had a Texas Salad on their menu.
Now, while I grew up in Texas, I had never seen such a salad. The waiter told me this dish is their best seller.
I’m not one to question it too much, so I tried it and loved it. It has a lot in it, so I tried to recreate it at home.
The main ingredient is corn. You could probably make any variation of that you wanted, but here is my version of this delicious healthy salad.
