Raw Plantain & Cooked Provision Salad

I cooked this dish as part of lunch yesterday using leftover cooked ground provisions I had on hand. The boys and my hubby all enjoyed it. I particularly liked the mix of sweet, sour and slight sting(from the garlic). I will most likely do this one again.

Raw Plantain & Cooked Provision Salad

Raw Plantain & Cooked Provision Salad

2 very ripe plantains
2 pcs steamed dasheen
2 pcs steamed white yam
2 pcs steamed sweet potatoes
2 small steamed tanias
1/2 cup frozen peas & carrots
2 tbsp grated garlic
1 small onion
Sea salt


Put frozen peas & carrots in a little warm water to help it come to room temperature.  In the meantime, dice plantains, dasheen, white yam, sweet potatoes and tanias. Set aside in a bowl.  Grate garlic and add to bowl.  Peel and coarsely chop onion and add to bowl as well.  Drain peas & carrots and add to bowl.  Add mayonnaise and a dash or two of sea salt. Mix all together and enjoy!

Note: I added the sea salt because the provisions were steamed. If the provisions are boiled with salt there should be no need to add extra salt. Too much salt is not good.

Note too: You can use any provisions you have on hand. This is one of those very versatile recipes that will not suffer because you substituted or omitted a ground provision. However if you omit the plantains you won't have the same taste.

Let me know if you tried it and how it turned out.
