The Bronx has its very own salad. It’s called “The Bronx Salad”. This salad consists of a lot of yummy goods such as red peppers, red onions, black beans, corn, tomatoes, mangoes, cilantro, avocado, plantain chips with a delicious dressing made from scratch. Full of flavor and I must admit that this salad is very filling.
This salad has been around since 2016 and it has been a successful hit thus far. The institute for family health says that this salad “Made with simple, fresh ingredients, the dressing includes the famous Bronx Greenmarket Hot Sauce, created by acclaimed Chef King Phojanakong, using peppers grown at more than 40 Bronx greenmarket farms and community gardens.” This is great! I feel much better eating this salad, knowing that the ingredients are locally grown.
