Add a taste of South Africa to the table this Heritage Day with local Avocados!


Nothing says South African heritage quite like a braai! This Heritage Day why not celebrate two South African favourites – our beloved braai along with homegrown avocados? After all, what’s a braai without a salad, and what’s a salad without avo, right?

From the berg to the bush and the beach (or even just your back garden), South Africans can braai anywhere, any time. This makes braais perfect for picnics in the park too. Of course, avocados are just as versatile, so you can take them with you no matter where you choose to fire up those coals!

Whichever way you plan to enjoy your Heritage Day braai, we have three must-have avo-laden salads to accompany your festivities:

A four bean and samp salad:


A boerewors salad:

Boerewors is often left over from a braai. Forgo those post-braai boerie rolls and rather use up your leftovers the next day in a salad: boerewors, grilled butternut slices and avo wedge

s with microgreens are a refreshing alternative that is more nutritious, super tasty and filling! Try this avocado and boerewors salad recipe.

A biltong salad:

For that classic braai salad, simply pair avo wedges with cubed cucumber and chopped red onion. For its biltong counterpart, toss together your traditional braai salad ingredients – tomatoes, cucumber, avo chunks, feta and olives – and top with shaved biltong.



Dark and green-skinned avo are equally delicious and contain good-for-you dietary fibre, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin K and folate!

Whether you’re indulging in shisa nyama; grilled peri-peri chicken and masala chops; bangers and rashers; plant-based protein; or a full-on Mzansi braai with the works, upsize your heritage quota and add South African avocados to your Heritage Day table.
