More of the good stuff

Chargrilled avocado and chicken salad

Yes you read that right – grilled avos! It’s a great way to give the regular avo a bit of a facelift. Chargrilling avo not only adds smoky notes to the salad, but also absorbs the flavour of the dressing really well too. 

Salmon tacos

These are perfect for taco Tuesdays or a Saturday braai with friends. The combination of the lightly charred fish and the creamy dressing makes these tacos unforgettable.
