Belgian Salad

For second day of our mega marathon titled “Around the world in 30 days” , I am now reached to Belgium.Belgian cuisine is widely varied with significant regional variations while also reflecting the cuisines of neighbouring France, Germany and the Netherlands. It is sometimes said that Belgian food is served in the quantity of German cuisine but with quality of French food. Outside the country, Belgium is best known for its chocolate and beer.

Belgian cuisine traditionally prizes regional and seasonal ingredients, leading to distinctive dishes like carbonade flamande in Flanders .Belgians typically eat three meals a day, with a light breakfast, light or medium sized lunch and large dinner.
So let’s start the recipe .yum
