Biltong Salad with Blue Cheese and Figs

Biltong Salad with Blue Cheese and Figs

This is South African fare at its best. Use fresh figs when in season.

Listen to the podcast 

You will need:
  • 2 punnets rocket leaves
  • 6 preserved whole green figs cut into quarters
  • 200g very finely sliced (paper thin) beef biltong, semi-dry
  • 125g wedge of creamy blue cheese
  • Ina Paarman's Blue Cheese Dressing

Line a large platter or 6 medium size plates with rocket leaves. Dot fig wedges here and there on leaves. Scatter the finely sliced biltong over the salad. Crumble over the blue cheese.

Shake the Dressing well and drizzle over the salad just before serving.


In place of biltong use crispy bacon pieces or for vegetarians use our Sundried Tomato Quarters in Vinaigrette.

If you don't like blue cheese, replace it with feta and dress the salad with Ina's Feta and Garlic Dressing.
