I am looking for a salad recipe to go with my Jamaican theme. Here is what I am making so far:
Jamaican beef patties
coconut shrimp (yeah, I know not Jamaican, but still tropical) w/ pina colada sauce
BBQ Jerk Chicken w/ mango salsa
Rice n' Peas
Sweet potato chips
Grilled & fresh tropical fruit
Tropical drinks served in coconut cups
I am lacking some veggies, a green leafy salad. Are there any Jamaican salads? If not, can you give me suggestions on a tropical-like salad? Or any suggestions on the party overall would be great.
Decor: I plan on printing out pics of Jamaica for placemats, then maybe put a little fact about Jamaica or the Rastafarians on the plates. I have lots of tropical flower decorations that hang from the ceiling, and a flower doorway curtain, lights, a big tiki man scene setter, etc, that I used for a Hawaiian Luau a while back. It is all tropical looking. It will be a pool party and I got light up floaties for the pool and an underwater light show. For music, of course reggae and newer stuff like Sublime and Pepper and Bedoin Soundclash. Theme colors will be the rasta colors, red, yellow, and green, so I'll have balloons that color, napkins, streamers, etc.
