3 Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and pour the mixture over the chicken pieces.

• Instead of chakalaka, add chilli sauce, wholegrain mustard, basil pesto or tomato pesto to mayonnaise.

• Avocado salad: Place a few cooked asparagus spears on a platter, top with avocado slices and

squeeze lemon juice over. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt on top.
