SriLankan Spicy Coconut Salad

This mouth watering, spicy salad is super easy and fast to make. It is usually made with freshly grated coconut, but you can make a very good version with unsweetened shredded coconut.

  • Add 1/4 cup boiling water to 1 cup shredded coconut, stir well, then cover the bowl and let it absorb the water. When it is cool to touch, add:
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot chili flakes (or finely chopped red Thai Chili peppers.) Quantity can be adjusted to your heat preference. Remember that you are mixing small amounts of this with rice, bread or other foods that may not be spicy, so this salad could be made quite spicy
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasalt
  • less than 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion (white onion if you must)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Combine everything well with back of a spoon to work the flavours into the coconut.
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes (optional)
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Keeps in fridge 2-3 days
