Eskom 'ek se' salad

In South Africa we are struggling a little to keep the home fires burning, or put another way, to make enough electricity for the general population. This may seem like a serious issue, and it is, but as the world's rainbow nation we are blessed with more than enough to be thankful for. Big sky, smiles that could power a few Chinese mega-cities, some of the world's best wine, legendary landscapes, wildlife of note and an excitement indigenous only to this continent.

In the weeks to come, if you try to switch the oven on and it says no, and if you're just not in the mood for a braai, which might seem an unlikely situation, here is a great little salad to keep you happy.


1) 200g mozzarella, sliced
2) 100g smoked salmon, torn into strips
3) 2 juicy, ripe peaches, cut into small wedges
4) a small pack of rocket, dressed in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar
5) a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
6) half a green pepper, cut into slices
7) a few slices of cucumber
8) a good drizzle of chili oil
9) salt and pepper


Mix all the salad ingredients, dress with chili oil and sprinkle over a little salt and pepper.
