We are meat-lovers. There’s no denying that at all. Committed carnivores 😀
But we also have many favourite side dishes to go with.
Here are a few of our utmost favourites; always present at our family parties.
Prawn, surimi & avocado salad
Simply shred around 10-12 surimi sticks into a serving dish, add 200g cooked and peeled prawns (the bigger, the better) and 1 whole peeled and chopped avocado.
Add to this, 1 small jar (250ml) of seafood sauce. You can also make your own by mixing mayo with ketchup and a tsp of Worcestershire sauce.
Cypriot Potato Salad
Boil 500g salad potatoes until tender, then either wait until they are cool before peeling and chopping into chunks, or leave the skin on and cut into chunks (depends on whether you like the skins or not!)
Add about 5-6 salad onions, finely sliced, 1 small bunch of chopped coriander (or to yield about half a cup)
The juice of 1 lemon, olive oil and salt to taste.
Cypriot Beetroot Salad
This one is easily altered to suit individual tastes.
Take about 8 cooked and peeled Beetroot, chop into large chunks, then add 2-3 peeled, crushed garlic cloves, or 1 finely chopped onion,
Salt, olive oil and red wine vinegar to taste (taste to see what needs adding- a little more vinegar, oil or salt? Go ahead!)
Chopped parsley, coriander or no added herbs? Also fine.
Serve with barbecued meat. Delicious.
