Six (6) Sides & Salads for your Easter Menu, Nigerian Style

by on March 31, 2015

A follow-on to Good Friday recipes. First Fish, now sides and salads.

To get started, read The Art of The Savoury Salad for ideas and recipes.

Here’s the collection:

Sauteed Greens

Green/ Amaranth leaves are sauteed with smoky fish and vegetables to give a tasty result.

Use spinach, kale or other greens for a similar result


Sauteed Green Amaranth

Herbed Mango Salad

One of my favourite recipes with salad. Combine sliced mangoes with a simple scent leaf sauce and you’re in heaven.

Recipes for Mango salads – simple and with nuts


Garden Egg Salad

A perfect way to serve up garden eggs and okwu-oji, but deconstructed.


Peanut dressed garden egg salad

Tapioca & Coconut Salad

Creamy, coconutty, filling, this salad is perfect for Good Friday. Topped with flaked fish – smoked mackerel (homesmoked if you like).



Green Pawpaw Salad

A gorgeous salad made with unripe pawpaws. Popular in Thailand, this could definitely become a Nigerian favourite.



Don’t want to make a green one? Then rustle up this ripe Pawpaw salsa.


Olive Salad

This quick and easy salad with olives is a great accompaniment to fish dishes.



Hope this is inspiration to create? Enjoy
