tahiti is an awesome place to be raw… i think its made for the raw life style. i drank fresh coconut water straight of the tree everyday, bliss! anyway, this recipe is adapted from something i remember reading on the blog that jinjie (of the garden diet) wrote…
  • Yield

    makes lots. i couldnt eat it all and i had it for three meals in a row
  • Equipment

    None

Recipe Directions

drink the coconut water and save the coconuts in thre fridge. once you have three split them open and remove the flesh. the flesh has to be firm, but still chewy. its an art to select coconuts at the perfect ripeness. dice the flesh and put in large bowl. dice the onion and garlic and add to coconut chunks. you could mince them, but we didnt have a mincer at the time. pour lime juice over mix. add spices and season to taste. stir in coconut milk and let sit for awhile for flavours to develop. serve over a bed of fresh lettuce.
i only wish i could have taken a photo. we didnt have a camera as it got stolen the niht we arrived in tahiti. it would have been perfect, with a bowl of papaya’s in the background. seriously tahiti was tropical fruit paradise.
and they sell fresh coconut milk in bottles at the regular store. they make it by hand everyday, simply gratge the flesh of a mature coconut and then strain through a nut mylk bag. i used to coat my hair in coconut milk before bed each night at rinse in the morning. it did amazing things to my hair. i love french polynesia, i sound like an advertisment for the place…. mmm, coconuts….

I was in Tahiti (Bora Bora, Vahine Island - off of Tahaa- and Tikehau) for my honeymoon 5 years ago - I agree - it's a great place to be raw! I wish i was raw back then! Nothing better than Welcome juice :) This sounds great and i'll be sure to try it out soon!
