Avocado and citrus salad with biltong

Everyone knows that biltong and avo is a perfect match. In the same sense, avo and citrus pair well – so can you imagine what happens if you put them all together… just try it!

Serves 4 – 6

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 25 ml (5 tsp) Westfalia Lemon-Flavoured Avocado Oil
  • 2 avocados, quartered and thickly sliced
  • 50-100 g biltong slices
  • 100 g goat’s cheese, sliced, cubed or crumbled
  • handful fresh watercress
  • pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Carefully cut away the rind and white pith from the oranges with a sharp vegetable knife. Hold citrus in your hand over a bowl and cut into segments catching the juices – you need 25 ml (5 tsp). Peel and segment the grapefruit.
  2. Mix the orange juice with the avocado oil to form a dressing.
  3. Arrange the rest of the salad ingredients, with the fruit on a salad platter and add a grind of black pepper. Serve with the orange dressing as a light meal or side dish.

Kitchen tips

  1. When in season, strawberries are delicious to substitute grapefruit. Cucumber will also work well.
  2. This orange dressing is great on any salad, or use it as a sauce for a stir-fry.
