Grilled Vegetable Salad

Summer is a time for vacations, enjoyment and all things cold. So you must be wondering why I am posting this warm vegetable grilled salad in this climate. But believe me this is a very comforting salad to have during hot weather.

Though warm this salad has minimum amount of spices and the dressing is so mild that you get to enjoy the goodness of all the vegetables in their most natural form.


The main attraction is the grilled flavor and adding the nuts which brings out the true  flavor of this
salad as the vegetables have not undergone complicated cooking procedures .


Just grill the vegetables , taking care not to overcook them so that they retain their crunchiness .The interesting part is that you can add any easily available vegetables or omit the ones which you dont have .

Normally adding citrus fruits like oranges, berries or pineapple will add the extra tang to this salad, but since I had only pomegranate I added the same and it gave the extra crunch to this already crunchy salad .







Ingredients :

1 ........................capsicum
1 .....................potato
1......................onion
1.......................carrot (medium)
4 to 5 ................mushrooms
4 to 5.................cherry tomatoes
4 to 5 .................baby corns
100 gm .................cottage cheese (paneer)
1 tbsp........................oil

Dressing :

2 ....................garlic cloves (crushed )
1 tbsp.............thyme (dry)
1 tsp...............pepper powder
2tbsp................olive oil
1tbsp.................lemon juice
2 tbsp.................honey
salt

Garnish :

1/2 cup...............pomegranate seeds
1tbsp..................roasted sesame seeds
1tbsp.................roasted sunflower seeds


Method :
Mix well all the things listed under dressing and keep .
Now cut the onion , carrot and capsicum into big pieces.
Slice the potato thickly.
Cut the mushrooms into half.
Make thick cubes of paneer.
Cut the baby corn or keep them whole if you like.
Now keep a iron tawa on gas and smear it with oil.
Now arrange all the vegetables on the tawa .
Keep potatoes and carrots at the centre whereas arrange the softer ones at the sides.





When they get cooked and charred turn them and cook the other side too.
When still warm mix these vegetables with the prepared dressing.
Add pomegranate, sesame and sunflower seeds and serve warm.
Have the salad with toasted bread .
You can even have this salad itself as a meal.
