It's all about salads and cocktails

Salads and cocktails are in HOT demand! Christabel, the creator of CHRISTABEL’S, shares her top 5 salad recipes - with matching cocktails.  

"Mixing fruit & veg in a salad is on trend this season" says Christabel. 

"My concoctions are simple, yet innovative. Flavours sign for themselves, so there is no need to tamper too much, in fact it is a mistake to do so. Experimentation, however, is KEY to originality. Similarly with cocktails - stay traditional, but add a twist - an unexpected ingredient."

HOT TIP - Go to a market and pick up a combination of your favorite fruit & veg. Mix them together and then add a punchy dressing. For instance mango is my favorite fruit, and avocado is my favourite veg - mixed together they are sensational - with the chilli dressing giving serious zing.
