Lato Salad ( Grape Seaweed Salad)

Lato salad is one of the seaweeds salad that I like a lot, I love popping it inside my mouth, yummy! Adding the vinegar few minutes before you eat it, will spoil the freshness of the "lato" it will not be juicy anymore. This seaweed is abundant in Davao regions of  Philippines and the neighboring regions.

Ingredients for 6 servings:
1/2 kilo lato ( grape seaweed)
1 tomato
1 small onion
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste

1.. Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Make sure that you do this when it's already time to eat because if not it is better to separate the vinegar to maintain the freshness of the seaweeds. Putting the vinegar more than 5 minutes before you eat it, will make the seaweeds sagged.
2. Serve with  grilled or fried fish or meat.


  1. thank you for sharing this, I love this salad, but just couldn't remember the name, I have missed homemade filipino foods and just want to thank you for sharing this recipe. The only question is where can I get this? I live in the UK.

    1. You are welcome I love sharing my recipes :-). Maybe it is difficult to find "lato" in your place :(.
