Uganda - Kuku Salad

Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. Kuku is a Swahili word meaning chicken so it's essentially a chicken salad.

Ingredients:

1 avocado
1 chicken breast
1/2 cucumber
1 handful green olives
100g feta cheese
1 tomato
150g yoghurt
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt & pepper



To make the dressing mix together the yoghurt, mustard, vinegar, herbs, salt & pepper.



To make the salad chop up the remaining ingredients into small bite-size pieces and arrange in a dish.




Finally pour the dressing over the salad.


The yoghurt made for a lovely creamy salad dressing with a very distinctive (but hard to define) taste. I bravely ate a huge spoonful of the salad to start with to get a taste of everything together. Mostly because I don't usually like olives or avocado. As we've experienced before lots of  flavours together make for a milder taste. The cucumber and feta toned down the olives and made for a nice combination. It was good to eat a different style of salad but I can't say we *really* enjoyed it. It was a nice looking salad though and I might experiment with using yoghurt as a dressing now.
