Easy Salad Recipe With A Difference

Tamarillos are very tasty fruits and they can be used to add flavours to all kinds of dishes. This is a salad dish you can make with tamarillos. The combination of tamarillos, avocado and salted eggs makes this healthy salad recipe really colourful and appealing to those who do not like the normal leafy green salad recipes.

Here is how to make a salad dish with tamarillos.

You will need three red tamarillos, two yellow tamarillos, one avocado, two salted eggs, a pinch of ground pepper and lemon juice.

Salted eggs can be bought from most Asian groceries.

Alternatively, you can read the article on How to Make Salted Eggs.

You do not need to use salt in this dish because the salted egg will give the salad enough flavour.

The avocado gives it a creamy texture and the red and yellow tamarillos add more colours to the dish.

Put the salted eggs in a small pot and enough water to cover the eggs.

Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, just like cooking hard-boiled eggs.

Remove the eggs from the pot and cool them in cold water.

When they are cool enough to handle, remove the egg shells and set aside.

Add in a pinch of pepper and some lemon juice.

Mix all the ingredients well and serve.

    Prasetio, tamarillos are one of those fruits out there that are still pretty much unknown to most people. Hopefully they will be readily available in the markets in the future. Thank you for your vote.

    Will345davis, thank you for commenting. When tamarillos are not in season, I use tomatoes and I can still enjoy my salad.

    I've never heard of tamarillos before, but this dish looks appealing. Your recipe seems easy enough. You explained the process very well. I really liked how you gave alternatives to those who can't get their hands on tamarillos

    In Australia, tamarillos are available in the supermarkets in autumn and winter. They are still pretty rare though, because not many people know about these fruits. I have two tamarillo trees in my backyard, but my neighbour has seven trees!!

    I've never heard of tamarillos, but I did click on your link to get an explanation. Are they in most grocery stores? I could make it with tomatoes, as I am a huge tomato fan. I would like to try the tamarillos, though. Thanks for the recipe. I love trying new ones.
