Swaziland: Slaai

Avocado Salad with Crushed Peanuts

  • Serves 4
  • Easy




Welcome to Swaziland, a small landlocked monarchy in the southern part of Africa.  It’s one of the smallest African countries and one of the last complete monarchies in the world.  It also has one of the lowest life expectancies in the world at just 51.  The country is known for civility and peacefulness, just don’t insult the royal family and look out for hippopotamus, at they’re known to get violent.  About 75% of the population is employed in subsistence agriculture.  Otherwise, common crops include sugar cane, tobacco, rice, corn and peanuts.  Staple foods include dishes made with sorghum and maize, such as mealie and pap (similar to porridge).  Although sold in tourist establishments, meat is largely a luxury for locals slaughtered for special occasions, and when it is every last piece of the animal is used.  Goat is a commonly eaten, and you may find “chicken dust” sold by street vendors, grilled chicken served with mealie and salad – or slaai.  The ingredients of slaai may vary, but avocado is a traditional component, as are crushed peanuts.  This dish is extraordinarily easy to make, and makes a great side!
