Risoni Salad

Risoni is one kind of pasta looks like Rice and is available in all stores. Risoni salad taste good with mixed crisp veggies , fruits and nice salad dressing with Garlic Mayo r Vineigrette. But, in my salad i didn't used the salad dressing cos my Hubby wants to have plain salad. So, i just sprinkle little bit of extra virgin olive oil on top of it. While using olive oil, use normal olive oil (refined or pure) for cooking and extra virgin olive oil for salads. Here is the recipe for the Risoni salad as follows,



Ingredients:

1.Uncooked Risoni - 1 cup
2.Diced English cucumber - 5 tbsp
3.Chopped deseeded tomato - 1/2 medium
4.Extra virgin olive oil - 1 tsp
5.Cubed pine apple - 4 tbsp
6.Shredded pomegranate - 4 tbsp
7.Chopped Green Bell Pepper - 2 tbsp
8.Finely chopped fresh Carrot - 3 tbsp
9.Lemon Black Pepper - 1tsp

Preparation:

1.Cook Risoni according to package instructions. After 5 - 8 mts of cooking drain the Risoni in collander and keep it aside.
2.Take one deep bowl or salad bowl, mix all the ingredients except olive oil, pomegranate seeds and cooked risoni.
3.Now spread the cooked Risoni in serving plate and arrange the mixture on top of the risoni.
4.Sprinkle the extra virgin olive oil follow with pomegranate seeds on top of the Risoni salad.
5.Let it sit inside the fridge for 5 mts and then the Filling Risoni salad is ready to serve for Dinner. After having this salad you will feel complete n filling meal for dinner. After the salad have the Low fat flavoured yoghurt for the dessert, my Hubby enjoyed this Risoni Salad with Low fat Raspberry flavoured yoghurt.

  1. Sathya, its very new to me. I will look for risoni in super markets. This looks very colourful and it is always wise to avoid those salad dressings bcoz most of them are loaded with fat.
