What I love about the Mallorcans is that no food is ever wasted and everything they make can be used for another recipe. I previously gave you a tasty recipe for Trampo the Mallorcan Summer Salad in the post I am going to give you a recipe for Coco De Trampo, that takes the Trampo recipe to a whole new level.
