I’ve been on a bit of a plantain kick lately. They are so wonderful! Grilled, roasted, fried… they’re like, the new Sweet Potato. No, just kidding. I still love my yams but plantains have been kickin it in my kitchen for the past month or so. Here’s a heavenly little fruit salad that includes my beloved plantains. Make sure to get ripe ones (at the very least make sure they are yellow/blackish and a bit soft.)

Enjoy this refreshing snack after an intense workout or maybe bring it to your weekend BBQ.

Goes great with some Jerk Chicken and sautéed greens!
