On This Little Pig’s honeymoon recently, this fine swine floated its trotters in the ocean foam, scuba dived with giant sea turtles and ate its body weight in chicken satay. Therefore once safely home with only the hint of a summer tan across its snout remaining, this porcine decided it was time to utilize the satay sauce it learnt, whilst on holidays, in a whole new way.
This satay sauce is incredible piglets and drizzled over this chop salad, it just takes the meal to a whole new crunchy and tangy level. This Little Pig could literally not stop eating it! This was a real shame as 30 minutes later, this porcine had tennis and between you and I, a whole bowl of salad 30 minutes before exercise is a really poor action plan. Nevertheless it was worth it and this fine swine’s golden rule is; never regret what tasted good, so upwards and outwards we say! This Little Pig encourages you to give this recipe a go, as it is surely, most surely, going to become a staple in any household. Oink!
