Potato and Coconut Salad

This wonderful ethnic salad is consisting of boiled potatoes, grated coconut and seasoned non-dairy yogurt and it goes well with every meal. For a hot summer day, a light snack with a drink and as a side dish to your main evening meal it is simply perfect.

  • 6 medium-sized potatoes
  • 1 3/4 cups yogurt (non dairy)
  • 1 1/2 tbs non-dairy butter
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups grated coconut
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 1 tbs grated ginger (fresh)
  • 1 fresh chili (minced)
  • 2 ripe tomatoes (washed and cut into 8 wedges each)
  • several sprigs of parsley
  1. Boil the potatoes until they are soft. Peel them, cut them into cubes, and put them in a bowl. Refrigerate.

  2. Mix together the yogurt, salt, and grated coconut. Heat the non-dairy butter in a small pan; then toss in the mustard seeds. Cover the pan immediately so that the seeds don’t jump all over the stove. 

  3. When they finish popping, add ginger and the chili. Stir for a few seconds. Empty the mixture into the bowl with the yogurt, drop the potatoes in the mix and toss gently to give the potatoes an even coating of the yogurt and the spices.

  4. Served chilled, garnished with a sprig of parsley and wedges of tomatoes.

This is a recipe that is quite spicy when done with chili and the ginger. 

I am a lover of flavors that are rich and ethnic like the ones  in the recipe but if you prefer something a little less rich and not so spicy just leave the chili behind or you can replace it with a tiny bit of cumin if you like

    Hi Barbara, you got it right, my first thought was exactly what you penned about in your first paragraph. I was wondering how can coconut and potatoes blend well?  However, even going through the ingredients and the instructions on how to prepare it, I can only say bravo for sharing such a recipe with us.

    Potatoes and coconut are a good combination. Potato gives us a lot of benefit to our skin and coconut is rich in natural sugars, vitamins, minerals etc. I love drinking raw coconut water because it’s so sweet. But I never tried in on a salad, These two combinations look really promising

    This is just nice .Potatoes and coconut  is a very nice recipe considering the ingredients involved in it. Most of the ingredients are good antioxidants. Ginger and coconut are all powerful antioxidants. This makes the salad recipe a very beneficial one . I don’t usually  eat ginger but I am going to try it with the salad. It looks a very delicious one.
