A delicious summer recipe – Crayfish salad

It’s the beginning of a new year, we all have resolutions and things we want to do or change and we all want to be healthy! So why not start off this year by incorporating some healthy and delicious salads into your diet? Clover has the perfect summer salad that you can make for yourself or the whole family and you are guaranteed to be dishing up a second helping after your meal.

The recipe is available in the Clover SA Food Favourites cookbook, which is filled with great, wholesome and truly South African recipes that will provide you with an omni-sensorial experience. The recipe book has in part been subsidized by Clover because we believe that good food and great memories shouldn’t be limited by price. Also, by purchasing the cookbook, you will be actively helping ladies around South Africa achieve their business dreams through the Clover Mama Afrika project. The project aims to identify women who are already agents of change in their communities and helps train them to become self-sustaining women with skills which then they can use to derive income from, in order to support orphaned and abused children and the elderly and infirm.
