Time 00:10


  • 80
    bag of fresh rocket
  • 80
    bag of curly lettuce
  • 1
    small cucumber - sliced into long fine strips
  • 350
    grated beetroot
  • 2
    large carrots - peeled and sliced into long strips
  • 400
    finely sliced biltong
  • 80
    blue cheese
  • 100
    pecan nuts
  • 5
  • Micro greens or sprouts for garnish


For the candied pecans, heat your sugar over medium heat until melted.  Slowly add more heat and as soon as your sugar changes to a golden brown colour, chuck the pecans in and give it a good stir to cover.
Melted sugar is hot, so be careful!

When you have been able to cover all the pecans in sugar, carefully transfer them to a plate to let them cool.

 So, with your salad, you have free reigns here; layer your leaves with cucumber, carrot and beetroot, top with hands full of biltong, a generous adding of blue cheese crumbs and top up with pecans. 

Garnish if you like.
