One of the best salads which I have ever had happyned at Deval’s house here in Suva, Fiji. Ashika is an expert on this and she re-made it for me again with the same glorious taste as before.
- 2 Carrots
- 1 Capsicum
- 2 Tomatoes
- 1/4 kg Pumpkin
- Other seasonal veggies
- Garlic (optional) – freshly grated or powdered
- 2 Cheese cubes
- Rock salt
Grill veggies one at a time to maintain its flavor. Grilling can be done on a proper grill or in a pan as well. Once veggies are placed on the grill season with herbs/garlic and salt. Mix well, once charred remove from grill and repeat for rest of the vegetables.
Once cooled, toss all veggies together in a salad bowl, add cheese, lettuce and salad dressing (we used Italian dressing). Olives can be added for extra flavor. I promise you, take this little extra effort and cook it, it is moksha for the stomach.
Tips: Veggies should be thinly cut so it can be easily grilled. No oil required.
