Upgrade your braai menu with these 5 salads


If you’re going to buy a ready-made salad (#nojudgment), then you need to pair it with the right braai meat. Here’s how:

Greek salad

This is an easy one – lamb, of course. Serve with a butterflied, deboned leg or lamb loin chops.

Lentil, feta and avo salad

This is one for the vegetarians, so you could serve alongside veggies skewers and braaied sweet potatoes. Instant upgrade? Add shredded chicken.

Rosa salad

Steak loves a tomato side. For a genius upgrade, add a bag of croutons and toss with lemon juice and olive oil for a cheat’s panzanella.

1000 island pasta salad

This kind of nostalgia needs nothing more than boerewors and mielies to make it a classic 80s braai.

Potato salad

This old favourite is always a great foil to crispy, sticky, charred chicken. For an upgrade, mix in chopped gerkins and boiled eggs.
