If you don't already have desalted and cooked cod, you need to do that first. Follow the method in my How to desalt and cook Salt Cod, but keep in mind that desalting the cod takes about 12 hours of soaking in water.
To prepare the salad
Chop all the vegetables into small pieces. I like to try and keep them all the same size. You can shred the cabbage using a mandolin is preferred.
Add the chopped vegetables to a large bowl.
Add the cooked cod and the lemon juice.
Mix everything together really well.
How to store
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
For the best authentic flavor, I highly suggest you cook your own salted cod, rather than buy ready-made. It really makes a huge difference!There are lots of different ways to enjoy this salad. One of my favorite ways is with a delicious coconut bake! The two make a great flavor combination! Coconut bake is super simple to make, too!In addition, this buljol salad is great on top of boiled yucca and/or cassava.You could also serve this salted cod salad over toast. I really like it over buttered toast with slices of avocado on the side!Moreover, homemade pita bread, and Greek pita (gyro) bread really compliment this salad, too!For an even yummier Caribbean dish, this salted cod salad would certainly pair well with plantains!Read the blog post for more tips and optional add-oins!
