  • 600 g boerewors
  • 2 cup cocktail tomatoes — halved
  • ¾ red onion — finely chopped
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • romaine lettuce — about 4 leaves
  • 4 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 tsp crème fraîche
  • Handful fresh basil



Cook the boerewors sausage over warm coals on the braai for 10-12 minutes until tender.

Combine the tomatoes, red onion, sweet chilli sauce and vinegar to form a salsa. Season it with salt and pepper.

Trim and wash the Romaine lettuce leaves and spread a teaspoonful of mustard in each. Add a sausage portion to each leaf and top it off with the salsa.

Add a dollop of crème Fraiche and garnish with basil leaves.



The romaine lettuce leaves can also be substituted with large butter lettuce leaves if preferred. It is softer in texture but will still hold the boerewors and salsa.
