Sheekh Kebab Salad

I had this salad recently at a small cafe called Baithak (which I also reviewed there at Zomato) and enjoyed it very much. However, like always, I felt the need to readjust a few things based on my personal experience and experiment with it. Also, this is my first salad recipe and I owe the need to do one to Abhijit as well, who asked why I never have one. So here it goes.

Ingredients for Sheekh Kebab Salad



Ingredients

For four
  • Green bell pepper – ½
  • Yellow/orange bell pepper (optional) – ½
  • Red bell pepper – ½
  • Lettuce leaves – 4
  • Black and/or green olives (soaked in vinegar) – 12
  • Lemon  – ½
  • Sheekh kebab  – 4 sticks
  • Olive oil – 1 tablespoon (see tip)
  • mayonnaise  – 1 dollop (optional)
  • Lemon pepper seasoning (see tip)
  • Salt
Method
  1. Slice the bell peppers into ½ cm thick vertical slices.
  2. Chop/tear the lettuce leaves into roughly 1 sq. cm pieces.
  3. Slice the olives into thin rings cross sectionally.
  4. Slice the kebabs into oval, ½ cm cross sections by holding the knife with a slight slant (this doesn't matter but the perfect round rings clash with the round olive sections :P so, you know...)
  5. Put the sliced vegetables in a mixing bowl and squeeze the lemon in it. Toss well.
  6. Drizzle the olive oil over it and toss well.
  7. Add the lemon pepper seasoning, salt and mayonnaise (if you are adding) and again, toss well.
  8. Add the kebab slices and toss carefully so they don't break. Serve at room temperature.
Tip
  1. I would personally suggest extra virgin olive oil not only for obvious health benefits but also for the flavour.
  2. You can replace lemon pepper seasoning with oregano or plain freshly ground coarse black pepper. Each will provide different flavours but equally wonderful :)
  3. You will find my lemon pepper seasoning recipe here ^_^
  4. I skipped the mayo in my version and it made for a very nice light salad :D
  5. You can add a few more vegetables of your choice. I recommend thin onion rings.
