A unique salad of roasted mushrooms and crunchy, colourful capsicums, flavoured with peppy herbs and tangy lemon juice. Roasting the mushrooms gives them a brilliant flavour and texture, which makes this salad very different and quite irresistible too.

Moreover, mushrooms and capsicum are both low in calories and fat, and rich in fibre, which makes the Roasted Mushroom and Coloured Capsicum Salad a good option for weight-watchers. Indeed, who can say ‘No’ to a dish like this, which is both healthy and fabulously tasty!

Serve with Boiled Hakka Noodles and Schezwan Sauce

Tried the recipe a number of times and loved it. Variations with broccoli and corns in place of mushrooms also come out very nice. Thanks 🙏
