Still looking for a healthy appetizer for your Thanksgiving dinner? Search no further, I’ve got you. Let me introduce you to your new favorite salad: Sympli plantain macédoine salad. A nutrient-rich salad made from unripe plantains, fresh vegetables immersed in a creamy mayonnaise-mustard dressing. Drool!
What’s a macédoine salad?
A macédoine is a French word for a salad made from small pieces of fruits or vegetables usually served cold as an hors-d’oeuvre (Engl. appetizer or starter dish). It is also known as Macedonian salad in English. The most common vegetables used are peas, green beans, corn and Irish potatoes and these are generally cooked before they are mixed with mayonnaise, mustard and other spices and herbs.
How to make Sympli plantain Macédoine
For my macédoine salad, I replaced Irish potatoes with Sympli unripe plantain.
- First, because I love plantains. For obvious reasons.
- Second, because Sympli unripe plantains have already been peeled and sliced making life easier for me.
- Third, because unripe plantains are a great food for a healthy diet.
Then, I used a variety of my favorite veggies like avocado, carrots, bell peppers and even added some fresh prawns which I boiled with salt, and boiled eggs immersed in a mayonnaise and mustard dressing, a drizzle of avocado oil and some salt and pepper. A combination of healthy goodness.
