What weekend of warm weather and balmy, still evenings would be complete without a braai? Last weekend, we stopped off at the Kloof Street butcher for some delicious marinated kudu steaks. I made my signature lentil, red onion, basil and tomato salad plus a simple green salad (with superb leaves), some baked potatoes and these: braai pita toasties. Fill a couple of mini pitas with butter, crushed garlic and fresh herbs (optional – I chose thyme, a favourite). Place on a cool part of the grill until golden.
