Getting to know Africa includes experiencing the vastly different – and yummy – expressions of each culture through food.
Sambal is the perfect summer side to accompany almost any dish. Fresh and flavourful, this lovely combination is easy to prepare. Grated carrots and apples pair up with garlic, ginger and rice wine vinegar to produce a tasty slaw.
There are many varieties of Sambal, showing up from Sri Lanka to South Africa, incorporating different ingredients – cucumber, tomato, onion and even pineapple! Most Sambals have a common trait – they are crisp and fresh versions of a slaw salad.
