Plantain Gouda Salad

This is another yummy salad I threw together with random things I had leftover and new things I had purchased.  As I’ve said before a successful salad needs a good crunch, in this case I used plantain chips.

I’m always looking for alternatives for potato chips,  since that is my ultimate weakness. I gave up fried chips in vegetable oil years ago and so I’m glad grocers are finally getting away from those and offering new healthier alternatives. If you start eating the newer alternatives you will notice a huge difference.

Things to look for are chips that are baked, and never fried. Some are pan cooked, and usually with newer alternatives like sunflower, coconut, palm, avocado, sesame, olive, canola, corn, grapeseed and peanut oils.  

Ingredients: Romaine, purple cabbage, banana peppers, plantain chips, chicken, cucumber, avocado, red onions, balsamic AND slices of  jalapeno gouda!

Approximate cost for one serving: $5

About inpursuitofrealfood

I am a real health conscious food lover always in pursuit of real, great food! My journey began way back around 2000 when I realized it was time to grow up and eat better. Fast food was not cutting it and staples I grew up on such as burgers and spagetti were getting old. I also began trying a new diet experimenting with what I ate and how I felt as far as energy levels and keeping my skin clear. Since then it has been a rewarding journey in the kitchen trying new fruits and vegetables and tons of fantastic new recipes.
