Peri-Peri Chicken Salad with Marbrin Farm

For the winners of the 2016 Absa Top 5 South African Extra Virgin Olive Oils, we are sharing recipes perfectly paired with each. Marbrin Farm’s Intense EVOO shows flavours of: green grass, salad leaves, green veg, herbs & walnut, well balanced, aniseed, complex, green fruit, pine needle, nettles, minty green apple and aroma, butter lettuce, rocket & baby salad.

Favourite, local chef Alida Ryder shares her “who-wants-to-cook-in-this-heat” recipe in anticipation of Summer and we think it’s perfect drizzled with this week’s #AbsaTop5 winner feature.
