    fluffernutter's Note:

    Malanga is a tropical root vegetable that is used like a potato and is especially delish in this salad. Unfortunately, it turns a drab shade of brown when boiled. The recipe is from The Purple Kiwi Cookbook by Frieda's (the fruit and vegetable importer). It's a fun, adventurous cookbook.

      This dish is amazing! I found a malanga root at my grocery store and was trying to come up with a tasty way to prepare it, and this one did the trick. I added a bit of grated ginger root and substituted chili powder for the red pepper flakes, and it was delicious. If you can't find malanga, I think it would be just as good with manioc (yuca) or even red potatoes.
