Mango Watercress Salad and Plantain Mango Kebobs

 

This recipe is an ode to my Haitian roots. It features several ingredients that we love to use or eat like watercress, mango, and plantain

Watercress is a leafy green that grows in natural spring water.  It is considered superfood it has  50  vitamins and minerals. It is a great source of calcium. Watercress helps to boost the immune system and has anti-cancer qualities. 

In Haiti, we use watercress in stews as well as salads.  This recipe is an ode to watercress salads I had as a child
