Salad herbs
Although meat or fish are the stars of the show, no braai is complete without fresh, crunchy salads. The most popular herbs for salad are sweet basil, mint, rocket, dill or fennel and chives or garlic chives.
Lesser known herbs that also add colour and flavour to salads include salad burnet, par-cel (looks like parsley, tastes like celery), horseradish, Vietnamese coriander which is otherwise known as hot mint, lemon balm, bloody sorrel, and the mushroom plant.

Dressings
Herbs with tough or strongly flavoured leaves, like thyme, sage, oregano and rosemary, are not really suitable for salads but are delicious when used in salad dressings such as herbal vinaigrettes. Allow the flavor of the herbs to develop by letting the dressing stand for at least 15 minutes before use.
