2 Quick & Easy Salads

2 Quick and Easy Salads ~ 2 Simple, no-fuss, basic salads for everyday eating #Salads #QuickAndEasyRecipes

As I said before, we love a good braai (BBQ) in South Africa - no matter the weather.

It's not just a weekend or special day event for our family.  We have it whenever the mood strikes us (read "me").

Some years ago it was said that having a braai is a lazy housewives way of feeding her family. I think that was around the 1970's.

Well, I can not agree or disagree with that statement. A braai can be very elegant or just plain casual. We do the plain casual part when I decide at midday, on any day, that we're having our meat over the coals that evening. I should rather say - late afternoon - as we eat anytime between 5pm and 7pm.

Ready-made, shop bought salads aren't always that good, although our supermarket has quite a variety - BUT taking the price (we pay per kilogram) into consideration, it works out a lot when we are 5 adults eating!

These two salads are very basic and therefore versatile - leave something out, add something else or whatever. When I'm in a hurry this is exactly what I serve!

2 Quick & Easy Salads

Carrot & Pineapple Salad;

2 1/2 cups Finely grated Carrots 
1 Can (440g ) Crushed Pineapple

1.) Mix the two ingredients! Done! (You might want to add a little sugar if the Pineapple brand you're using is a bit sour)
Best served chilled.

Potato, Egg & Cheese Salad;

6 Medium Potatoes, cooked and cubed into bite-size pieces
4 Eggs, hard boiled, roughly chopped
1 cup Cheddar, grated
1/2 - 3/4 cups Mayonaisse (depending whether you like or love Mayo)
Salt & Freshly ground Black Pepper
2 t Dried Parsley or 2 TB Freshly chopped Parsley

1.) Mix the Potatoes, Eggs and Cheddar gently. Add the Mayonaisse, Salt and Pepper and stir through.
2.) Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with the Parsley, chill and serve.

Two simple salads - Lots of nutrition!
