15 min
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray or grease lightly with butter. Melt the butter and fry the chives until soft. Add the waterblommetjies and allow to cool slightly. Add the remaining filling ingredients and mix. Brush one layer of phyllo pastry with melted butter and top with a second layer. Brush again with melted butter and slice lengthwise into four strips. Spoon a tablespoonful of filling onto the pastry near one comer and fold diagonally to form a triangle. Keep folding until you reach the end of the pastry strip (it should look like a samoosa). Repeat with remaining filling and pastry strips. Place on a prepared baking sheet and brush again with melted butter. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Arrange on a platter and decorate with lettuce leaves and olives. Sprinkle with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar just before serving. Makes 20 triangles.
