What is a paleo diet?

The Paleo Diet is one of the hottest diet trends around, mostly due to celebrities that follow it and the influencers who swear by it. There are even Paleo cafes in and around Australia! The Paleo diet follows the basic principle of “eat foods a caveman would have access to.” Or better yet known as “eat whole foods.” This would include plenty of healthy fats, proteins, and produce, but exclude grains, dairy, and processed foods. This diet also emphasises grass-fed, sustainably caught, and free-range options. And that’s why our Cleaver’s organic sausages are the ideal addition to any of your paleo recipes. And when you can eat healthy and get the same tasty and full flavour, what’s not to love?

Paleo variations of this dish

Salads are always fantastic because there are so many variants of them around. Mixing up the fresh produce in this recipe is a simple but effective way to enhance your paleo salad recipes. Adding things such as kale, lettuce, cucumber, maybe even a splash of lemon can really enhance and diversify your dish.

Similarly at Cleaver’s, we have other paleo meats for you to substitute. Of course we would recommend using our organic beef sausages for this dish, but why limit yourself? We offer two other paleo products which can easily be substituted into this dish. Firstly, we have honey beef chipolatas which can give an added sweetness to your meal. We also have chuck and brisket beef burgers which can be cut and spread onto your paleo salad. A nice break from the usual chicken salad and Cobb salad which seems to dominate the paleo salad world.

5 top tips to help you build the most incredible salad

Firstly, for the base of your salad stick to what you know, love and find delicious! If you know you love kale and lettuce and celery, make sure they are in your dish. Let the main item be the variant. Instead of sausage, maybe put in some chipolatas or chuck & brisket burgers to give the dish a different feel.

Secondly, don’t forget to add some seasoning to your salad. Some salt and pepper and maybe some other herbs and spices to compliment your choice of meat.

Thirdly, dress to impress. A well dressed salad is a happy salad so be sure to add a salad dressing which will compliment your salad and bring out the best flavours of your dish.

Fourthly, get your hands in there! Tongs sometimes can’t get into all the nooks and crannies that your beautiful dish has. So get your hands in and make sure all of the ingredients in your paleo salad are mixed well.

Finally, drain your salad well. Nobody likes a soggy salad. And your sausages need the perfect resting place in this fantastic paleo recipe!

  1.  6 Cleaver’s organic beef sausages
  2.  2 large sweet potatoes
  3.  2 large red capsicum
  4.  2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  5.  3 cups mixed greens
  6.  1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  7.  1/4 cup chopped greens 

 

Ingredients for dressing (option 1)

  1.  1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  2.  1 clove garlic minced
  3.  2 tbsp honey
  4.  1 tbsp dijon mustard
  5.  1/2 cup olive oil or avocado oil

  2. 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  3. 1 tbsp Paleo Dijon mustard
  4. 2 tsp ground ginger

Method

  • While heating your grill, prepare your vegetables. Peel both sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch thick discs. 
  • Slice your capsicum in half vertically, then again so that you have 4 long pieces. Brush the vegetables with olive oil or avocado oil.
  • Cook cleaver’s organic sausages and vegetables on the grill, turning about every five minutes. Your vegetables will be lightly charred, and sausage should be cooked though before serving.
  • Chop up your veggies into small pieces, and sausage into bite size pieces. 
  • Place the salad ingredients with mixed greens into a large bowl, and add fresh cilantro and green onion.
  • Whisk together the dressing ingredients into a small bowl: apple cider vinegar, garlic, honey, mustard, and oil. 
  • Pour over top the veggies and sausage.
  • For dressing option 2:  Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl or jar and stir well to combine. Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy with your family and friends!
