It's #HeritageMonth and everyone is going to braai, so why not try this braaied pear, biltong and feta salad to add some extra zing to your menu. Jean Nel has perfected this salad, and many more braai favourites in his book Braai The Beloved Country.


4 pears, quartered

250 g feta cheese, crumbed

100 g wet biltong

1 packet wild rocket

1 spring onion, chopped

honey to drizzle braaied pears

salt and freshly ground

black pepper

olive oil to brush pears

balsamic vinegar to drizzle over salad


Quarter pears. Brush with olive oil and braai on a medium heat until caramelised. 

Take off the braai and drizzle with honey.

Mix the feta cheese, rocket and spring onions together in a bowl.

Drizzle with more olive oil and season.

Add pears and some balsamic vinegar.

BRAAI NOTE: Serve a beautiful wedge of blue cheese instead of feta.
