This Grilled Paneer Salad with fresh spinach and seasonal mangoes is not just a stunning dish, but also perfect as a large center-piece salad for a dinner party or a barbecue party.
Grilled paneer salad is one of the best things you can do with paneer. And we all know how well paneer pairs with palak or spinach, so this is one of my favourite salad combinations. Add a few other veggies for colour and crunch, and a delicious dressing and your summer lunch is ready in no time.
I have fresh dill growing in my kitchen garden at this time of the year. It is a very strongly flavoured herb and some people totally hate it, and rightfully so. Using a tiny bit of it to flavour the dressing works well in the salad without any overwhelming dill flavour.
You do need the firm variety of paneer for this salad. The very soft and crumbly malai paneer variety will completely fall apart in the dressing and will not be suitable for grilling.
