Green Salad with a Twist
This is a delicious green salad with a twist to serve as a side dishes for your lovely braai (BBQ) evening. It is very quick and easy, tasty and healthy. Other than your normal green salad most people serve with their braai, this is somewhat different.
And what is a braai without a salad? This particular salad we used to make at our Braai (BBQ) evenings. Other than our normal green salad we used to alternate the two. The fresh coriander leaves add delicious flavour to it together with the lemon flavour. Get the fresh coriander from your local nursery or supermarket.
When you are busy making this green salad with a twist, you must remember to basically just add the veggies in the boiling water and immediately remove them. It is wise to keep a bowl of cold water with ice cubes and add them in there once taken out of the boiling water. The beautiful green colours of the veggies will keep looking vibrant green. And it will cool off in the cold water. It will prevent the veggies from cooking further and becoming that awful green colour.
Mange tout (sugar peas) are these days a bit more expensive than a few years back, but you can definitely spoil your family with this lovely green salad with a twist.
You can add delicious baby marrow strips (also lightly blanched) to add more veggies to the salad. Yuppy Chef has a very good tool to quickly make your baby marrows into spirals. Baby marrows are a lovely vegetable to work with and easy to chew!
