I love chicken wraps, not only are they super tasty but they healthy too! Its always so well received by my family that I almost feel a little guilty because it took just minutes to throw together.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any healthier, we throwing out the wheat and wrapping it up in a lettuce leaf instead …
1x 80grm chicken frikkadel (recipe here)
1 large crisp lettuce leaf
few slices chopped tomato
few slices cucumber
few slices carrot
For the Coriander Yoghurt Dressing:
Yield: 250ml (will be suitable for a few wraps)
1 cup coriander, roughly chopped
1 cup fat free greek yoghurt
3 spring onions, chopped
good squeeze of lemon juice
For the dressing – put all ingredients together and blend. Adjust lemon juice seasoning to taste.
To assemble wrap: Cut frikkadel in half and place inside the middle of the lettuce leaf, drizzle over a little yoghurt dressing, sprinkle with tomatoes, cucumber and carrot, drizzle over a little more dressing and fold lettuce leaf over to close your wrap. Cut in half and enjoy!
I was invited to the “Your first taste of our Christmas” party by Woolworths (aka the Mothership) and took my Mom along. From arrival, I knew it was going to be a good party … the black runway carpet led us into the building, where we were whisked up by a waiting elevator to the Inner City Ideas Cartel building’s roof top bar (What a great venue for a function!) in Waterkant Street, Cape Town. As the elevator door opened, we were greeted with a glass of bubbles – Yes please ! A second later, we were handed this delicious snack platter for 2 …
Two very happy customers
Jenny D from Top Billing was there and let’s just say my Mom was a little star struck (She’s a big fan) …
Woolies had a beautiful display of their festive food on show … some old favourites and some new items too.
(if you haven’t already, you have to try the Chocolate Brownie Mince Pies – OMW!)
They had Chef’s cooking up a storm in a make shift kitchen downstairs, churning out the most delicious canapés, using the Woolies products on display and the results were delectably delicious !
The Canapé Menus – each prepared by a different Chef
Some of the delicious canapés we sampled – The Gammon Bitterballen Balls were a favourite, as was the pulled duck salad
Creative and inexpensive cutlery holder idea !
The gift bag we were spoilt with when leaving …
Thank you Woolies, we had a ball !
