HIGH PROTEIN KIDNEY BEAN CASSAVA SALAD
5 min Prep, 5 min Cook
Protein enriched Caribbean style salad topped with sweet lime dressing.
I guess you could say that this salad recipe is to bid farewell to summer..so long…farewell *sniff* *sniff*. Granted salads can be eaten all year round BUT…….we as a nation like to overindulge in them more often then not during the summer time.
This salad as a slight tropical to feel to it, as you may have already noticed I opted for some cassava known as yucca to the latino community and butternut squash rather then use the typical greens – lettuce etc..These root vegetables are a great source of vitamin C by the way!
This a great dish to sustain your body throughout a busy day, for example if you’re looking for something that has an equal balance of protein, carbs and healthy fats then this would be ideal as it offers the aforementioned. It is important to note that the body needs a healthy balance of macro and micro nutrients in order to function probably.

- For the sweet lime dressing:
Prepare the dressing by adding all of ingredients together in a blender and blitz into a smooth consistency and set aside.
Arrange all of the ingredients for the salad on a serving dish, make sure the cassava and squash and completely cool.
Once everything is on a dish then feel free to pour a generous amount of dressing onto the protein enriched salad.
