We have neighbours across the street from Ecuador. The mangoes and bananas found in my store are all coming from Ecuador this time of year. My neighbours always bring us a taste of their homeland for us in the form of canned fish with potato chunks in a tomato-esque sauce. Different, but good. They pride themselves with growing the best bananas, plantains, and mangoes. Just like Canada has the best maple syrup, beer, and hockey players – we all wear the love for our country’s exports on our sleeves.
Inspired by the tropics, I created this dish for the kiddos as a salad along side my indian-made-easy dinner.
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 ripe mango, diced
- 1 tsp lime juice (half of a key lime)
Combine everything in a bowl and serve immediately.
If I had some seedless red grapes, those could be halved and tossed in as well.
