Kūmara, banana and spring onion salad


Serves 6

4-5 medium kūmara, cooked, sliced into chunks
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
¼ cup roughly chopped, dry roasted peanuts
2 spring onions, finely sliced
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
¼ cup coriander leaves

2 Tbsp grated lemon rind
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup lite olive oil
1 Tbsp sugar


Place kūmara, bananas, peanuts and spring onions in a bowl.
Blend dressing ingredients together.
Pour over salad and toss gently.
Add pepper and serve garnished with coriander.

Tip: Use the lemon vinaigrette (recipe above) or add grated lemon rind to a commercial vinaigrette.

To boil kūmara:
Place vegetables in a heavy-based saucepan and add sufficient cold water to just cover.
Place a lid on the saucepan and bring to the boil as quickly as possible, reduce heat and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until the kūmara are tender when tested with a skewer or tip of a knife. Drain.

Note: Always simmer vegetables as vigorous boiling will cause some vegetables to break up.
