Broccoli, Asparagus and Holloumi Salad

Long-stemmed broccoli is one of my most favourite things, followed closely by holloumi. Then there's my obsession with salads with little to no lettuce - it's all here. A salad that's neither boring nor bland; it's vibrant, crunchy, sweet and absolute win. And, it will go with absolutely anything.

Atchar and Pineapple, Chicken Burger

The Peppadew company of South Africa have upped their game of late, introducing a whole range of new and exciting Peppadew products, including an array of fabulous Atchars. An 'Atchar' is a South African pickle, most often served with curry. 

They contacted me and asked if I wanted to be part of their #AwesomeAtchar campaign, to think out of the box and come up with an interesting South African recipe incorporating one of their atchar products. I had a little think and decided on a seriously decadent, chicken and atchar burger paired with sweet grilled pineapple and cooling mint raita to counter the spicy kick. It’s a great combination and perfect for any braai. You can vote for your favourite recipe from the campaign here.
