At your next braai add low-fat, healthy, chicken kebabs to your menu and a side serving of yoghurt tatziki, as well as some low-fat ostrich kebabs with a slightly-spicy, dried-mango dipping sauce.

Ingredients :

Chicken, cut into cubes

Ostrich, cut into cubes

Selection of vegetables off your choice: peppers, onions, courgettes, mushrooms, celery, tomatoes.

180gr Cucumber

5ml Garlic, grated/crushed

15ml Fennel, chopped

60ml Low Fat Yoghurt
