When you see carrots and cabbage lying fallow in your fridge, what comes to mind? Coleslaw right? Well, if you are a huge fan of coleslaw, then this 5 minutes recipe is for you.

If you’d guessed salad was going to be my next post then you are so right. I just couldn’t afford to let the remaining vegetables used for the chicken shawarma go to waste – food recycling.

I know what you are thinking, really? Ponmo salad? Why not! If you eat potato, fish, beef and chicken salad then ponmo salad shouldn’t sound weird to you at all. Ponmo (cow skin) is well loved by all; it is affordable and has been nourishing lives since 1800. Lol. This simple recipe is another twist to Nigerian salad.
