~*Brazilian inspired salad… 

 A Brazilian inspired refreshing summer salad from my Carnival Kitchen for you to enjoy preparing and eating while watching the Olympics! 


400g Black Beans 

1 medium sized mango diced 

4 slices of pineapple grilled and diced 

1 medium sized avocado diced 

1 red onion sliced 

3 cucumbers sliced 

A large bowl of cherry tomatoes sliced 

4 palm hearts sliced 

4 tbsp chopped coriander 

1 red hot chili pepper 


4 tbsp olive oil 

2 tbsp Cherry vinegar 

Juice of 1 lime and zest 

Method of Preparation: 

Assemble the ingredients and serve on a dish (in a similar manner to the picture). Add the mixed dressing and enjoy! (Makes 4 Servings)

Black beans are one of Brazil’s main staple foods loaded with fiber, proteins and rich in iron, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc ! 

Consuming beans over lunch increases satiety and reduces appetite throughout the entire day thus leading to a decreased consumption of food! 

As seen during my live segment on OTV, every Thursday at 9h00am.. 

 And in L’orient Le Jour newspaper in my weekly column, Bien&Bon every Tuesday…
