Magnificent salad

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.

The ingredients

  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Capsicum
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1/4 kg Pumpkin
  • Other seasonal veggies
  • Lettuce
  • Garlic (optional) – freshly grated or powdered
  • 2 Cheese cubes
  • Herbs
  • 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.

Bon appétit!!

Tips: Veggies should be thinly cut so it can be easily grilled. No oil required.
