4 Side dishes to try at your next braai!

From home to home, across South Africa, local favourites are loved and expected at every braai. They make everyone feel at home and add an element of heritage to the occasion. But, you don’t always have to make the same side dishes every time you’re standing in front of the fire. Try these 4 recipes at your next gathering. 

Cheeky Chakalaka 

Chakalaka is probably South Africa’s most popular braai side dish. It accompanies almost everything that can be cooked on an open fire, which makes it unbelievably versatile. Throw it together for your next meaty feast.

Crunchy Cool Slaw

Coleslaw is a side dish you can find at almost all braais, and it almost always tastes the same – unless you have one or two tricks of your own. To mix it up, try our Crunchy, Tangy Coleslaw when you’re next in the mood for slaw, it’s a gourmet spin on this classic dish. 

Go Greek

Simple, lean, easy to make, the Classic Greek Salad is always a winner. And the best thing about it is that it is another one of those versatile meals that tastes great with most foods. Toss up a huge bowl of this excellent braai dish addition for your family and watch it disappear. 

Why, Hello Potato 

Another twist to a golden add-on at the braai is this Warm Bacon, Blue Cheese and Spring Onion Potato Salad. It will complement, big, steak heavy meals, or go down like a dream with Spicy Roast Chicken
