Here is another Afro Cosmopolitan recipe incorporating our much loved biltong. I created this recipe whilst I was on my healthy eating challenge. Whoever said healthy eating meant depriving oneself of the best of flavours has got it wrong. If you simply moderate what you are taking in, there is no reason why you cannot enjoy your favourite foods. A lovely light lunch for 4, or easily filling for 2 :).

100g of your favourite salad leaves
4 spring onions
8 baby new potatoes
200g fresh pineapple pieces
60g cheddar cheese, cubed
100g red and yellow cherry tomatoes
4 boiled eggs, halved
100g biltong
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

1. Boil, steam or microwave your baby potatoes then set aside.
2. Boil your eggs. A good tip is to switch off the pot as soon as the water comes to a boil and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Remove and put eggs into cold water then shell.
3. Chop the spring onions then add to salad leaves in your favourite serving dish.
4.Toss in the pineapples, cheddar, cherry toms, halved eggs, biltong and potatoes.
5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy with your favourite dressing. I personally love this with Heinz 70% less fat salad cream.
