How to Make Banana Stem Nutri Salad

  • Slice the banana stem.
  • Soak in buttermilk with a pinch of salt. This prevents discolouration of the stem.

  • Squeeze and drain the banana stem and add to the bowl. Toss well.
  • Add salt, sugar and pepper. Give it a stir.
  • Line a salad bowl with lettuce or cabbage leaves.
  • Tip the tossed vegetables into the bowl and refrigerate.
  • In a jar, add all the dressing ingredients. Shake well.
  • Just before serving the salad, add the dressing and toss well with a fork.
  • Serve with toasted garlic bread.
