Seasoning


METHOD:

1. Place oils, vinegar and seasoning in a small jar and shake to mix. Leave on table to dress just before serving.

2. Cut Potatoes in halves. Place Potatoes in a pot and bring to the boil, simmer for 20 mins then strain and place on a baking tray.

3. Preheat Oven to 180C. 

4. Peel and Cut Pumpkin into similar size to the Potato halves. Place onto the same tray as the potatoes then drizzle all with a little of the Extra, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Bake in the Oven for 20-25 minutes until all are golden and can be pierced with a knife.

5. Cut Zucchini and Eggplant into long lengths about 2cm thick. Place a Char Griddle on medium heat and cook each piece of Zucchini and Eggplant until the flesh is opaque (looks cooked through) on each side. Set aside to cool. Now place the Roma Cherry Tomatoes on till they blister a little, then set aside to cool.

6. In a pot of boiling water add the beans and cook for 2 mins until just cooked through, al dente. Set aside to cool.

7. Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and toss together to create your salad. Now garnish with Pepitas and Dress with the Balsamic Lemon Dressing. Serve immediately.
