Breadfruit Salad

Country: The Cayman Islands
Course: Side
Makes: 6-8 servings


  • 1 full/fit breadfruit, diced (I used two cans)
  • 3 strips of cooked bacon, diced
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, roughly chopped
  • 1 habanero pepper, seeded & diced
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 can sweet green peas
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp season all
  • 1/2 tbsp salt


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, peel your breadfruit, remove the core and cut into one-inch cubes.
  2. Boil the breadfruit for 15 minutes or until tender. Now drain the breadfruit and let it cool. (Note if you are using canned breadfruit, you can skip this step because the fruit is already soft. Just cut it into one-inch pieces and add to your mixing bowl).
  3. Grind the onions and peppers in a food processor.
  4. Combine the ground pepper/onion mixture with the sour cream, vinegar, sweet peas, boiled eggs and habanero.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and Season All (I just used a seasoned salt).
  6. Add the breadfruit and bacon and toss until well coated.
