Every time I looked up Swazi salads, I happened across some combination of avocado, lettuce, onion, and beets. Beets were everywhere: red heaped piles of shredded beets, beet jelly with corn in it, sliced beets. Just look at this Swazi Food Recap. I also found a fun avocado and radish salad topped with a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh grated ginger, and crushed peanuts from The World Cookbook for Students. In the spirit of salads everywhere – the “toss what you have together”variety – I combined the ideas and came up with a beautiful, nutritious salad, or “Slaai” as they call it in Swaziland.
