African Salad

Our driver/tour guide/cook served this delicious salad on several occassions and I loved it for great taste as well as simplicity.

  • White Cabbage, finely shredded (or buy coleslaw mix)
  • Red Cabbage, finely shredded
  • Onions (slice into rings)
  • Hard-boiled eggs (slice or half, your choice)
  • Carrots, grated
  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Dressing of your choice (he used a mixture of mayo, sugar, oil, and vinegar, I think; tasted like Thousand Island dressing, maybe?)
  • Optional: add slices of meat and/or cheese as well

Do NOT mix ingredients -- just arrange in a nice pattern on a large plate and serve dressing separately. It looks and tastes great!
