Jill Nowers’ WOW salad you *have* to make

Jill Nowers’ WOW salad you *have* to make

Jill Nowers, owner of the popular Jack & Jill Food Co., turns simple dishes into joy on a plate. We asked her to create one of her signature salads, and spoil us with the recipe. Here it is… enjoy!

For the basic salad, you’ll need:

Green & purple lettuce
Cut celery
Sliced biltong
Sliced chorizo
Slices of halloumi
½ avocado, sliced
Pinch of salt and pepper

Pebre (spicy fresh tomato salsa)

150g chopped romanita tomatoes
1 small fresh red chilli, finely sliced (leave the seeds in for the burn if you like)
Finely sliced red spring onions
A handful of chopped, fresh coriander
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together and mix into the basic salad.


Balsamic garlic dressing

50ml fresh lemon juice
50ml balsamic vinegar
200ml olive/sunflower oil
3 cloves crushed garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

place all ingredients into a jar. SHAKE SHAKE.

Add Ins…
A pinch of brown sugar or a drizzle of honey if you want your dressing sweeter
Dried mixed herbs
Whole grain mustard

This goes well over the salad. In fact, always have a bottle handy in the fridge, yummy on most salads, but also great
drizzled over oven roasted veggies.
