DIY salad bar

Making your own salad bar at home is fun. Set out all the ingredients on the table and let everybody put together their own salad:

  • Green: lettuce leaves, spinach leaves or rocket
  • Red: tomato, red capsicum
  • Yellow: sliced capsicum or a can of corn kernels
  • Orange: grated carrot
  • Fruit: a punnet of berries in summer; in winter, a can of peach, pineapple, apple or pear slices
  • Protein: a can of butter beans, sliced egg or a small bowl of diced cheese (feta, mozzarella, edam)
  • Sprinkles: nuts, raisins, pumpkin and sunflower seeds
  • Special occasion sprinkles: croutons, bacon, or miniature marshmallows (great with lettuce, apple, walnuts and thinly sliced celery)
  • Dressing: Greek yoghurt (natural or sweetened) in a bowl, or lemon juice mixed with honey

HFG tip

  • Raw chicken is full of bacteria. Wash your hands after you handle the meat.
  • Eating undercooked chicken is dangerous. If the sliced meat is still pink inside, simmer 2 minutes longer.
  • You don’t need salt in this recipe: the feta cheese is salty enough.
  • Instead of potatoes, you can use cooked penne pasta. Or serve the salad with slices of multigrain bread.
