We’ve had an unseasonably warm Spring this year in Pittsburgh and I’m pleased to say that we’ve already broken out our grill on several occasions! I was going to wait until summer to share today’s recipe, but since my own grilling season has begun, I figured you all would probably appreciate a tasty side dish to go with all of your glorious grilling creations!
This is a short and sweet (or rather, savory) little recipe that came about when I was seeking a side dish to go with some of our grilled burgers and hot dogs. I had already made a batch of my Dairy-Free Avocado Ranch Dressing to slather on our burgers, and I realized it would also be a delicious base for a mayo-free potato salad. Since potatoes are nightshades, they’re not AIP-friendly. While sweet potatoes seemed like a good second choice, they just didn’t fit the flavor profile I was looking for. And then the lightbulb went off: Green plantains!
The green plantains in this Paleo Plantain “Potato” Salad are a perfect starchy potato substitute. And when you combine green plantains with the creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing, crunchy radish and celery, and smoky bacon, well, you’ll swear you’re eating legit potato salad! This easy, delicious side dish is sure to become a staple for your outdoor barbecues and picnics this season!
