Updated: Aug 24, 2021

Bananas and Tomatoes. People may think it is a quirky combination!!! I know, but sometimes the most unusual combinations make the best companions. Must try, if you haven't already.

Looking for something quick and different to make? Something out of the norm that will take not just you but your guests also by surprise? Look no further, I have a befitting dish for you.

Pair banana with tomato in a salad. Absolutely unconventional combo but interestingly tantalising. Perfect as a side dish to your meal and made literally within 5 minutes. This is also a perfect lunch or dinner by itself for those watching weight or on a plant-based diet. Skip the sugar part if you want to keep it lean.

Here are some wonderful benefits of bananas and tomatoes. Banana provides 10% of our daily potassium requirements. It helps our body maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure. In addition, bananas are low in sodium. The low sodium and high potassium combination helps to control high blood pressure. While tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. In other words excellent for the skin.

Well then let's get moving. Chop-chop...
