KEEPING IT LIGHT, HEALTHY AND FRESH AT KLOOFZICHT SPA.

As you are catching up on your daily dose of social  media, the brand new Kloofzicht Spa Cafe Menu is going to print. We are super excited about using the freshest of ingredients, keeping it healthy while adding a touch of decadent sweetness just because we can.

My ultimate favourite must be the Parma Ham, fig and goats cheese,  crisp garden greens with  cocktail tomatoes, cucumber & olives, but the Camembert, pear & pecan nut with crisp garden greens, cucumber and feta come a close second.

Jamie Oliver calls his version of our parma ham and fig salad the “sexiest salad in the world”. (Although his version features Mozarella)

Ingredients

  • 4 figs
  • 4 slices quality Parma ham or prosciutto
  • buffalo mozzarella
  • green or purple basil
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

I love his comment on prepping the salad:

“One thing I do is to criss-cross the figs but not quite to the bottom. Then, using your thumbs and forefingers, squeeze the base of the fig to expose the inside. At this point you’ll think, ‘Oooh, that looks nice, I think I’m quite clever …’ or at least I do. More importantly, it allows your dressing to get right into the middle of the fig. All these little things really help to make a salad special. Simply place the figs in a dish, weave around 1 slice of Parma ham or prosciutto per fig, throw in some slices of buffalo mozzarella and rip over some green or purple basil. Mix the extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, honey and some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper together in a bowl and drizzle everything with this dressing. As far as salads go, it’s pretty damn sexy.”

Or just pop  into Kloofzicht Spa and we will make you our version. It goes well with a full body massage, I hear.
