Green Banana Salsa

Here is another excellent raw recipe to celebrate the fresh flavors of summertime! I made a couple small changes from the original recipe to keep things completely raw. I found this recipe to be so filling by itself that I ate it as a salad for dinner. The leftovers were even better the next day for lunch because the flavors had more time to meld together!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped*
  • 1 large sweet yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 red onions, chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 small piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 green bananas (ripe and slightly green bananas work best so you don’t get a mushy salad)
  • Juice from 1 1/2 limes
  • Chopped cilantro, to taste

*Be careful with the jalapeno. I scrubbed my hands twice after handling and still ended up with burning eyes!

Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Eat instantly or cover and let sit for a few hours for a deeper flavor.

Let me know what you think!
