Sloe Salad Days
We've been experimenting again! This time it was the turn for some left over apple jelly made with our sloe gin.
We know spring has sprung and summer is on the horizon when our tastebuds move away from winter stews and head towards salads. However after waiting so long this year for the warmer weather, it did rather sneak up on us and we weren't fully prepared! So when the call came for a couple of barbecue side dishes this week, we opened the fridge and scratched our heads for how to use some broccoli, celery, carrots and our own Sloe Gin Apple Jelly that we found lurking......
Apple Jelly and Broccoli Waldorf Salad
A waldorf salad is a fabulous side dish and we thought we'd put a Wiltshire Liqueur twist on a classic. We roughly chopped a head of broccoli and finely chopped a few celery stalks. In a separate bowl we mixed together mayonnaise with our apple jelly and stirred it through the veggies. Finally we topped it with some crumbled feta and roughly chopped walnuts, a grind and pinch of salt and pepper and voila!
Apple Jelly Coleslaw
Another classic side salad is the old faithful coleslaw, a surefire way to pep up those barbecued sausages. With our version, the addtion of our apple jelly introduced a lovely sweet twist. We finely chopped a spring onion and mixed it with grated carrot and cabbage. We then swirled our apple jelly into mayonnaise, with a good seasoning of salt and pepper before stirring it through the veggies.
We hope our culinary experiments inspire you to try your own versions of salads with a twist. Do let us know how you get on.
