Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.
When I grew up, the family would gather on a Sunday for lunch. Everyone will be responsible for bringing one salad and one meat dish so it almost always resulted in someone bringing some form of jelly salad. My most favourite one is the Avocado Jelly Salad.
In South Africa we bought avocados by the case. It is for that reason that I love making this recipe.
I absolutely love serving salads as part of our dinner in the evening, however, I do like to keep things interesting as I would hate for it to become just another side-dish that have to be consumed just because it is healthy.
When all things spoke the potato said, ‘set me warm, dig me warm, eat me warm, that’s all i want.’ I couldn’t agree more with this age-old Irish proverb! Who doesn’t love a great dish that comes from the most humblest of origins: the potato.
What would you do if potatoes become extinct?
With summer time I’m always on the prowl for something that is light, but tasty at the same time. With an abundance of mint in our garden it is inevitable that I have to incorporate it into my cooking.
Summer time is salad time. The fresher the better!
There are a few staples that you will always find at a South African braai: pap, sous, greek salad, garlic bread and potato salad. This is my ultimate potato salad recipe.
