This salad makes a nice change to the traditional Greek salad (minus the tomatoes, green pepper and olives) and compliments a braaied (barbecued) lazy aged steak perfectly.
Peppadew is the brand name of sweet piquant peppers (a breed of capsicum baccaum) originally grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa – if you are unable to find these, you can replace them with any other sweet piquant peppers.
