A very simple to make salad from Ghana with really complex flavors. Make it as spicy as you like by using hot instead of sweet paprika and upping the cayenne.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the avocados, remove the pit and cube the flesh.
  2. Place in a bowl with lemon juice.
  3. Grind the peanuts so you have small chunks.
  4. Sprinkle the nuts and spices over the avocado and toss gently.
  5. Garnish with chopped chives.

Edible but not great. Maybe I didn't have good ingredients or didn't do something right.

This is what I love about ZWT... being introduced to flavor combinations that are new to me. This made a nice afternoon snack. Thank you Chef Kate.
