Kumara Salad Recipe

willman, Dec 11, 8:06am
I have been asked to take a Kumara Salad, for Christmas Lunch.
Anyone got an easy to make recipe they would like to share, Please.
One I had tried, some time ago, I believe the Kumara was boil, then cooled then cut up. A dressing was made of Sour Cream and Salad dressing. If you can help, I would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

Love the Thai Kumara & Carrot salad you buy from supermarket delis.

Yes willman that is about it. Use twice the mayo to the sour cream. You can use aioli or whatever. You can also add a squeeze of lemon juice to the dressing. Mix with those lovely Thai coated peanuts and sprinkle rest over the top.

The other nice one is roasted kumara in bite size pieces, red onion and mustard seeds. This is lovely hot or cold. Dress with balsamic vinegar and dried tomatoes.

who can afford kumera at the moment

edit to say, if you go to the side bar and put kumara salad in, you will find some more

This is just lovely, got it off here a couple of years ago. I make it all the time.

Kumara and Carrot salad (like the one at countdown or new world)

• 500g of red kumara peeled and chopped into 2cm chunks and 300g carrots chopped into 1 cm chunks. Boil these until tender (I roasted them),
• 1/2 small red onion grated, 1 garlic clove, crushed or grated, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp curry powder, 1 tbsp honey, 2/3 cup canola oil and a small tin of crushed pineapple in juice (include the juice), handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped roughly, salt and pepper.
• Mix the sauce ingredient’s together and pour over hot veggies and it will soak in nicely.

I got a couple of bags at PNS the Other week for a reasonable price, considering the weekend before I had paid over $10 for 3 big ones. PNS were smaller, but that is fine.
