Greek Style Veg-All Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing

Cooks Show Creativity With Canned Veggies

Greek Style Veg-All Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing
(NAPSA) - A growing number of cooks are getting creative with canned vegetables.

That's what the makers of a major brand of canned mixed vegetables discovered during their first recipe contest, when cooks across the U.S. were invited to use the popular pantry staple Veg-All(r) to add a new twist to a home cooked favorite. The result? More than 1,400 different ideas on how to add convenience and nutrition to family favorites old and new.

According to home economist and contest judge Judith Stadler, cooks often turn to canned vegetables for convenience, but rarely for creative inspiration. "The winning recipes show that letting creativity out of the can has some surprising and tantalizing results," Stadler notes.

The contest's grand-prize winning recipe, Greek Style Veg-All Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing, brings the point home. You can give it or one of the contest's other winning recipes a try the next time you want to do some out-of-the-can cooking.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 1 can (15 oz.) Veg-All(r) Original Mixed Vegetables, drained

  • 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 2 scallions (or green onions), thinly sliced
