I shared this delicious and very refreshing salad over at DIANE’S VINTAGE ZEST a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you too.
Living in sunny South-Africa we have great weather just about year round – with the exception of a few weeks of low temperatures during Winter (which has started on June 1st ).
That being said, we do a lot of outdoors cooking, no matter the weather, especially over the weekends when we have lots of braaing (BBQ-ing) going on whilst watching a couple of Rugby games.
We enjoy this salad not only with grilled meats, but as a side salad to many pasta dishes as well. Pasta dishes are normally filling enough to be served on it’s own, but I do like to add a small side salad bowl to the meals as well. A something refreshing and crunchy is always welcome with a saucy pasta.
