Grilled Capsicum and Tomato Salad

Salad is a must item in our dinner menu. So I to try find out new salad recipes which are easily prepared with ingredients available at home. Came across this recipe by browsing the site. A Morocoon Salad with grilled green capsicum and tomato with vinaigrette dressing.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large green capsicums
  • 2 firm tomatoes, peeled & deseeded

Basic vinaigrette dressing:

  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
Procedure:
  1. Wash, cut and dessed the capsicums into half. Grill the capsicums by placing the cut side down until the skin blisters and blackens. Cool peel and cut / dice into small pieces.
  2. Cut / dice tomatoes into small square pieces similar to the grilled capsicum.
  3. Take a mixing bowl and place the chopped capsicum and tomato.
  4. To make the vinaigrette dressing, combine all the ingredients mentioned and whisk together until the salt and sugar are compeltely dissolved.
  5. Pour the dressing over the salad and allow to stand for 10 minutes to gather flavour. Refrigerate until serving time.
  6. Garnish with a tomato flower and serve chilled.
