To those of you who aren’t Ghanaian but are open to trying more worldly cuisine, I hope you expand your palate by trying this dish. Click here to find out the recipe. Continue reading
I call this recipe a time saving salad because that is exactly what it is. I like to make certain items in large portion sizes to last throughout the work week. It makes it easier for me when I have one less thing to do when getting ready for work the next day. I like to take a huge container and prepare a salad that will last 5-7 days. Leaving me to free to only worry about my entree. It also helps for those days when I am feeling to lazy too prepare my lunch the night before.
