I made this salad over the weekend and it was a hit with everyone in my family. If the banana taste is overwhelming it may be that they were to ripe. You should use very firm bananas with some green on them. It will make the banana flavor milder.

I think there no recipe for this article...

I made this recipe today, following it exactly. I hate to waste food. This was a total waste! I love every ingredient in the list, but this combination was really awful. The banana overwhelmed every other taste. I think it might have actually been edible if I had omitted the banana, but I like to follow a recipe as directed on the first run. Did your test kitchen even make this recipe. If yes, did they eat it?

I made this but used a jerk seasoning on the chicken so that I had a spicy and sweet. The banana must not be ripe but more of a skin of green yellow. For a change instead of using Toasted coconut. Use Fried plaintain chips.
