Papaya And Fried Plantain Salad


Basically when one thinks of salad,  they envision green leafy veggies, fruits and all healthy non-oily food. So you may be thinking “Whats up with the fried plantain?” I also have no idea! But ever since I started RB, I have followed many food blogs which have inspired me to take things to the next level! It’s a crazy thought that came to me and then next thing I knew, I was making the salad because all the ingredients were available. Its an experiment that surprisingly came out right. Happy dance.


2 C  shredded papaya(it has to be nearly ripe but still crispy)

1/2 C Julienned (crosswise) fried ripe plantain

1/2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley

1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

A pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together and let chill for an hour. Serve cold.

PS: Make sure that the fried plantain completely cools down before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.

    1. Hello Lisa. I used ripe plantain. I cut it into thin pieces and pan fried it in a little oil till golden brown. I then flipped to the other side and fried till it also turned a golden brown. Hope this helps. Please let me know how it turns out when you make it.
