Ghanaian salad( African)

If you have ever been to any Ghanaian or African event & happened to see salad with a lot of dressing,cucumber to garnish or baked beans then this is the one lol. Not your typical "healthy" salad, but I looveeeee it! (Haha)


  • 1 medium sized onions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 carrorts
  • 1 iceberg lettuce(or leaf lettuce)
  • 1 tin of tuna
  • 1 small tin of baked beans(I prefer the heinz one,usually found in African markets)
  • 4(or less) eggs
  • Heinz salad dressing or any mayonnaise of your choice


  1. Wash all your vegetables very well, make sure you dry the lettuce well before mixing with the other veggies (you don't want watery salad)
  2. Boil your eggs
  3. Start by cutting your onions,tomatoes and carrots (I sometimes grate my carrots....but that's just me), mix in a large bowl, chop your lettuce add it to it. 
  4. By now your eggs should be hardboiled and ready, remove the shell, slice it with knife or egg cutter, mix some in the salad and set aside some of it for garnishing
  5. Stir in your tuna and baked beans, add your salad dressing or mayonnaise (this part is by preference, some people like theirs very creamy and some don't, so do it how you like it)
  6. Garnish the salad with the rest of the eggs, spread some salad dressing on top(put in fridge till ready to be served)

  7. The ingredients
    Egg cutter (you can use a knife if you don't have this)
With leaf lettuce
Tuna and baked beans
