Fried plantains are a traditional treat in many parts of the world. Try them once and you'll be hooked. Yellow (ripe) work best. Serve this as a sweet and savory side dish to a meal, as a dessert, or as a snack. They are also delicious atop a dark, leafy, and green spinach or kale salad with goat cheese.
