La Receta del Dia: Ensaladilla de Pixbae con Guayaba edit

Px_1 Chef Mark from ReMARKable Palate wrote a masterpiece on the culinary adventures of the fruit made paste! Take a moment to visit the Gastronomic Meditations website, look for "A Sensual Flamenco Alegria". In this article Mark focuses on the "Perada" from Portugal that marries cheese perfectly.

Continuing on the same path, I will honor the fruity theme with a tropical recipe that blends with audacity "pixbae" (peach palm fruit) and "pasta de guayaba" (guava paste).  Serve it as an appetizer, or side dish.

Now, the recipe:


  • 1  lb boiled pixbae, peeled, seed removed and chopped (or 1 jar ready to eat pixbae)
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro fresh leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 2 oz guava paste, chopped


Combine well the onion, cilantro leaves, hot sauce, lime juice, mayonnaise and cream cheese. Add the dressing to pixbaes and the guava paste at last. Store in the fridge until ready to serve. It keeps well for 3-4 days. Enjoy!
