Banana Braai Salad Recipe

A delicious, tropical fruit salad featuring bananas, pineapple, grapes and crunchy almonds in a yoghurt and chutney dressing. • This salad is full of fibre and natural flavour. Bananas are a good source of energy, packed with calcium for strong bones; potassium for muscle cramps and tryptophan which is converted into the ‘happy hormone’ serotonin.
