This pako is a regional delicacy I have learned to eat when I was young (I remember my father telling me when I was a kid that I can live in the mountains coz I eat wild/exotic plants). Popular in some regions, but not quite known in some. Whenever I see the pako being sold nowadays, I make sure I buy some and prepare on of my best green salads!
Exciting Fern Salad!
5. Squeeze calamansi juice (or lemon juice)

Well, it is of course best served with rice and....crackling liempo (crispy fried pork belly with ribs!) Whoaaa!
