Yield: Serves 4
So simple, so fresh and so welcoming to any additions you want to bring in like cold poultry, or nuts or fresh herbs. This is the great introduction to cooking with your hands. Tearing greens and tossing salads with your hands tells you if there's not enough oil (the leaves are dry feeling when they should have the slightest suggestion of slick) or there's too much fruit. Summer greens are all over the place in tastes, from tart to almost sweet, from crunchy to melting. You want them all in this salad, what ever you can find will make it all the better. And have the fruit underipe so it's almost crisp.

When Marvin Gapultos had a craving for adobo but didn’t know how to make it, he decided to learn his family’s recipes. Since then, he has shared the flavors of Filipino food through his Los Angeles-based food truck The Manila Machine, on his blog Burnt Lumpia, and in The Adobo Road Cookbook.
