Over the years I’ve shared many delightful recipes using breadfruit, so it gives me great pleasure to be able to share this wonderful breadfruit salad (like a potato salad) with you. I have a number of breadfruit recipes in my arsenal I’d like to share with you, but being in Canada means paying very heavy prices.. ‘when’ it’s available in the markets. BTW the breadfruit pie recipe is still one of the most well received recipes I’ve shared to date.
3 cups cubed breadfruit (cooked)
1/2 cup bell pepper
1/4 scotch bonnet pepper (diced fine)
1/2 cup celery (diced finely)
1/4 cup red onion diced finely
3/4 can peas and carrots
3 hard boiled eggs (diced)
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard (Dijon)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
pinch black pepper
* We cooked the breadfruit in salted water so I didn’t add any further salt, but do adjust to your own liking.
Peel, core and boil the breadfruit in salted water. Cool, then cube into 1/2 inch pieces. Then prepare the other ingredients so it’s just a matter of assembling when the breadfruit has had time to cool.
If you struggle to get perfectly boiled eggs, check out this video tip: How To Cook Perfect Boiled Eggs. << Click! Then it’s just a matter of cutting the boiled eggs into small pieces.
Place the breadfruit, eggs, onion, scotch bonnet pepper (no seeds), celery, bell pepper and the peas and carrots (drain and rinse with cool water) in a large bowl, then get ready to make the rick and creamy sauce to bring everything together.
Stir (be gentle) well. Then in a small bowl, place the mayo, vinegar, mustard and black pepper and whisk. Now pour this mixture into the bowl with the other ingredients mix well (with a folding motion) and finally top with a dusting of paprika.
Be sure to place in the fridge to chill before serving. Yet another delicious recipe using breadfruit, especially during the summer months when you’re having those wonderful BBQ events.
