For the The Del Monte Blogger Recipe Carnival on IndiBlogger,I thought ,the Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive oil would be the perfect choice.And I was right !
Ingredients : 1 small beet root, 1 small potato,1 small carrot, 1 small cucumber,1/2 green capsicum,1/2 onion,1/2-1 tbsp Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive oil,1/4 tsp oregano ,salt to taste.
Method : Pressure cook beet root ,carrot & potato in the pressure cooker.Put off the gas & let the cooker cool.Take out the potato,beetroot & carrot & peel them.Cut them into small chunks.Keep aside.
Wash cucumber ,capsicum & onion.Peel cucumber & cut into chunks.Chop capsicum & onion also into chunks.
Mix all the veggies in a glass bowl- the cooked as well as the raw ones.Add 1/2 to 1 tbsp Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive oil & mix so that the Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive oil is coated on all the veggie chunks. Add 1/4 tsp oregano spice powder - it is like bits of leafy flakes.Add salt to taste & mix again so that salt & oregano coat all the veggies.
I ate the salad just like that - in fact ,if I had made more ,I could just have the salad for a meal ! The Del Monte Extra Virgin Olive Oil just adds the right amount of dressing to the salad.Even my daughter, who makes a face at many of the veggies loved the salad !
