I always have this myth of using only English vegetable’s for a salad recipe. I was put to shame when I was served a banana stem salad at a naturopathic clinic. I was like.. gosh why didn’t you think of this before you dumb female. well, we learn more and more only through experience and experimenting. A lesson learnt for sure. I did taste it slowly making sure to take note of all the ingredients added to the salad. Back home gave it a try and it was exactly like what I had there. I made one change to the recipe of boiling the vegetable and sprout used which made the salad more tasty but sure with more calories.I had a clean empty bowl in the lunch table which is a good sign of approval from all at home.
