If you ever thought butternut was only for winter and soup you’d be very wrong. Who would have thought that raw butternut is appetizing and appealing. Well it is! I love it and in my view it has a taste very similar to spanspek which is a delicious fruit now in season and one that I grew up on. This easy, delicious, 3 ingredient salad is so refreshing and an absolute winner for a braai.
Being a beautiful day in Durban, I thought I’d make a lovely barbeque chicken and butternut salad for dinner which is a light and easy meal. One of my friends or family in CT gave this recipe to me a few years ago because it’s recorded in my little black book of recipes but for the life of me I cannot remember who, so if you are the brains behind this gorgeous salad, please let me know so I can give you credit on my blog.
You will need
1 butternut, peel and grated
1 can crushed pineapple (including juice)
1 packet peach jelly (just powder, don’t prepare)
