A Festive Season Salad

While many people across the globe wrap themselves up and celebrate in the snow, the festive season in Africa is quite different. Hot days, filled with juicy mangoes and blue skies are more the order of the day, and the only thing cold is usually our drink!

With this in mind, we have decided to share one of the delicious summer meals made by our salad maestro Solly Mangena  from Thornybush Game Lodge. This delicious aubergine dish will delight everyone with all the festive colours, but it is also easy to make. 

Enjoyed as a side dish while accompanying your festive meal, or as a salad on its own.
