  • Combine all the ingredients together in a small bowl and toss gently to coat.
  • Let sit for 20-30 minutes at room temperature for the flavours to develop.



You can jazz this recipe up by adding any other Caribbean fruits of your choice: pomegranate, melon, cantaloupe, plantain, mango or even apples.
If fresh coriander (cilantro) is not to your taste, you can replace this with mint or basil, but never parsley as the flavour of parsley is too strong.
