How to be a braai hero: pair the right salad with the right meat

20 Sep 2016

Greek salad
This is an easy one – lamb, of course. Serve with a butterflied, deboned leg or lamb loin chops.

Lentil, feta and avo salad
This is one for the vegetarians, so you could serve alongside veggies skewers and braaied sweet potatoes. Instant upgrade? Add shredded chicken.

Rosa salad
Steak loves a tomato side. For a genius upgrade, add a bag of croutons and toss with lemon juice and olive oil for a cheat’s panzanella.

1000 island pasta salad
This kind of nostalgia needs nothing more than boerewors and mielies to make it a classic 80s braai.

Potato salad
This old favourite is always a great foil to crispy, sticky, charred chicken. For an upgrade, mix in chopped gerkins and boiled eggs.
