Shrimp paste veggie salad

This vegetable salad recipe was added with shrimp paste which we call here the bagoong alamang, this is a fermented condiment commonly used in our country as addition to recipes, or as a dip for green mangoes (raw). It is primarily made from tiny shrimps added with salt and other spices. It’s available in grocery stores and this one I bought was a garlic flavored one. This flavorful dish is rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants etc.
