I love meat. I really love fruit. I also just so happen to LOVE starchy veggies. I could eat my weight in avocado, plantains, and carrots, so sometimes I have to pull myself back a little and remind myself to get more greens. My Amazing Grass smoothies help get a ton of my daily green nutrients, but its nice to eat them as well sometimes. This salad is a result of needing some extra veggies for the day, not having mayo on hand, and celebrating the versatility of nut butter, specifically the creamy, stone ground Dastony kind.
Since I was going to be eating this salad with plantains, I chose lime and coconut to give me a little tropical vibe- they always remind me of a trip to central America, as they were our favorite snack throughout the trip.
This is a great base for adding chicken, oranges, avocado, you name it. I opted to keep mine pretty simple and almost coleslaw like.
It was a great, fresh and light side for dinner… enjoy!
