This unique salad features a selection of exotic ingredients, which are semi-cooked with onions and garlic and dressed in a tangy, herby and sweet dressing of honey and orange juice.
We have chosen a multi-textured combination of ingredients for this salad – capsicum for crunch and colour, baby corn for its tenderness, broccoli for its mealy texture, zucchini for its juiciness and mushroom for its chewiness.
Perked up with a garnish of lettuce and a dressing that is bursting with flavour, these ingredients turn into an exotic treat that will amaze you.
Serve the Mushroom, Broccoli, Baby Corn and Zucchini Salad with Honey Orange Dressing immediately after preparation, and make sure the cooked ingredients cool down before tossing in the dressing.
