African Salad (Abacha & Ugba)

Ingredients for Abacha

The following are the complete ingredients you need to make a delicious African Salad. I will group the ingredients for ease. I did not use all these in the video because they are not available where I live.

For African Salad, the more ingredients you use, the tastier and more « complete » it will be. Some people may regard Ugba as optional but for me, it is a must. 🙂
