Salad - The Sierra Leonean Way

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe. Today's midweek recipe is a quick salad.  This is actually the way my grandmother made it back in Sierra Leone, many many years ago and its one of my go to recipes especially when I get unexpected visitors. It is quick, colorful and most of the ingredients are always in my pantry and fridge.  
I medium sized iceberg lettuce, 2 Lebanese cucumbers, 2 medium tomatoes, 1 medium brown onion, 1 large potato (boiled), 1 tin luncheon meat, 1 tin baked beans, 3 eggs (hard boiled)  and mayonnaise (optional)
After some serious chopping, slicing, dicing and can opening 
Assemble and enjoy! That took about 20 hard minutes, how exhausting! Phew!!!! 


  1. I'd omit the meat but it looks fantastic. x

  2. Colourful foods are my favourite. I've not had this type of beans in my salads. I may try it as well in a veggie version too. :)

  3. It reminds me Russian salads a lot! We too like to mix veggies, potatoes, eggs and some sort of meat or fish with mayonnaise in many different ways. Yours looks yummy! And grannies recipes are always the best, aren't they? :) We know they were made with lots of love. :)

  4. Looks good but I would remove the meat.

  5. It reminds me of a potato salad and a Cobb salad combined, both of which I love. This looks quite tasty and hearty. I love beans and I think you could switch to different types of meat or beans with this salad too, depending on what you have on hand. Thanks for sharing it!

  6. This looks and sounds amazing. I love salads they are one of my favourite foods.
