I was raised in South Africa so I am a huge fan of Nando’s Peri-Peri Hot sauce. I love to put it on everything. It adds a little bit of a spicy kick that I cannot get enough of.
This quick and easy-loaded salad goes with just about anything you are eating!
I roasted some Petites carrots till they were golden but firm. If you cannot find these you can substitute larger multicolored or regular carrots. Just cut them into smaller wedges.
The salty feta goes beautifully with the creamy avocado. And a good quality Italian olive oil just finishes it all off.
