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…
