The Cook with Biltong Club: Asian-style biltong salad

So today I’m happy to be creating another delicious dish using one of my favourite ingredients: biltong. The Chichester Biltong Company have come out with a new biltong flavour – teriyaki – which I thought would go perfectly in a crisp salad with flavours of the East. And it did. This recipe is quick to prepare and tastes absolutely amazing…your guests will be licking the bowl clean – we did!
