I absolutely love sausages. Big plan of mine is to make my own someday soon, but until then I will enjoy the fruits of my heritage, boerewors! My grand mother used to make her own, so when I grew up we had the best of the best.  In thinking of this dish I was trying to take something I ate a whole lot while growing up and make it really delicious.  A quick lunch when I was a kid was boerewors with eggs, tomato and salad.  This is me, taking that memory and spicing it up a touch. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

When plating salads I like to make things look as organic and natural as possible. I will start with a bed of lettuce topped with the onion and ricotta. Then drizzle some dressing and  carry on stacking the items on top finishing with the egg and a nice drizzle of the dressing.  Serve warm.

  • ½ cup spring onion sliced finely
  • 2 tsp. crushed garlic

Combine everything in a bowl and mix well. Store in fridge.
