Make the End of 2020 a Feast with Westfalia Fruit

Words: Crush

South Africans are experts when it comes to cooking and sharing meals. We live in a country where we always find a reason to celebrate a special day or event with good food.

Share it in style

Even though the entire family or circle of friends may not be together (as of yet), the #AVOEXPERTS would like to inspire you with their festive recipes. Pass these recipes along to other loved ones so you all get to share the same meal, even when you are not physically sitting around the same table this holiday season.

Feast with the #AVOEXPERTS

Westfalia Fruit will show you how to make the most of this season’s quality ingredients. Using what the season has to offer is always the best way to add lots of flavour to any meal and to cook up a storm.


Impress with avo goodness this festive season

Whether you are having a picnic, an alfresco meal on the stoep or just enjoying the warm summer days, these recipes just have to be part of your menu.

Most of the cooking can be done in advance and it’s easy to serve as either an elegant festive table or to pack for the outdoors. Add all the goodness of fresh avocados to your summer meals with Westfalia Avocado Oil and Guacamole. All three recipes can be served in so many ways. Think starters, side dishes, small tapas-style meals, or even stylish ‘padkos’. Or add something gourmet to it, as suggested in the tips of each recipe, to turn it into a complete meal.

Avocado and Berry Salad

Wow your guests with this fabulous Avocado and Berry Salad. Just look at it – so mouth-watering. The sweet, juicy berries are perfect with creamy avocado and the toasted macadamia nuts are just amazing! We will not blame you if this becomes your go-to-salad for the rest of the summer.

The homemade dressing is a combination of Westfalia Plain and Lemon Flavoured Avocado Oil, wholegrain mustard and fresh thyme. It will turn any salad into a scrumptious, elegant side dish. The salad is equally impressive served on a large platter, individual plates or even in jars.

Tip: Serve this salad with the delicious nut and seed mixture in the rustic flatbread recipe.

More than just a salad dressing

Westfalia’s range of avocado oil is definitely not only meant to drizzle over salads. This healthy and versatile oil is suitable for any cooking method. The oil is expertly pressed from the flesh of ripe, hand-selected Hass avocados to preserve their flavour and natural goodness.

There are four flavours in the range: Plain, Lemon, Garlic and Butter. In this recipe, the subtle lemony taste is so good with the berries. The Westfalia Plain Avocado Oil’s neutral flavour is ideal for adding seasonings like the mustard and fresh herbs to compliment the other salad ingredients.

Avocado Caprese

Tomatoes, fresh basil and cheese are always good together. Add slices of fresh avo and avocado oil and you have a burst of flavours. You may recognise this as the well-known Italian caprese salad, but this isn’t just any caprese – it’s an Avocado Caprese.

First roasting the tomatoes and then tossing them with Westfalia’s Lemon Flavoured Avocado Oil creates an unbelievably delicious dressing. Spoon this onto fresh avo and get ready to feast!

Real, fresh avocados

The flesh of about two ripe Hass avocados is used to make every tub of Westfalia Guacamole.
