Roasted Marrow Salad with Black Olives and Lemon Oil

I thought I had shared all my marrow recipes last month, but must have missed this somehow, saying that though I do still have one marrow remaining in the vegetable basket.

I made this Roasted Marrow Potato Salad with Black Olives a couple of weeks back around the same time I made the Marrow Lemon Conserve.
This Roasted Marrow Potato Salad with Black Olives  wasn't anything special, but it made for a change from the typical pasta salads that I make for work.  It was also a good way to use up some left over potatoes and my marrow aka summer squash harvest from the garden.  The dressing was simple, an oil vinaigrette made with Azada Lemon oil.

I am sharing this with Soups, Salads and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen; and with Eat Your Greens.  

Roasted Marrow Potato Salad with Black Olives
500g new potatoes, cooked and sliced in half - set aside

1 medium marrow, cut in half longways, scoop out the seeds, then sliced into 1/2 cm.
2 tablespoons lemon olive oil plus extra
4 cloves garlic, still in skin
Salt and pepper to taste
Zest of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons black olives, sliced
On a large tray, add the sliced marrows and garlic, season to taste then coat well with the lemon olive oil
Roast in oven for 25 minutes or until the marrow slices are tender
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Remove the skin from the garlic and mash with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Stir in the new potatoes, lemon zest and black olives and the cooked marrow sliced.
Stir well, then return to the oven to heat through for 15 minutes.
Serve immediately or at room temperature as part of a light buffet or for lunch.


  1. That's an interesting recipe. I love roasted veggies but haven't tried marrow. I'm visiting from Souper Sunday.

    1. Thanks Linda. You may know marrow as Summer Squash.

  2. I love your roasted veggie salads - they always make me think of the sort of beautiful plates you get on holiday. They just make me think of sunshine.

    1. Your kind Joey. It was a way to use up surplus veg really.

  3. It looks like an easy and tasty salad. Loving the lemon oil in it too. Thanks for sharing your salad with Souper Sundays this week. ;-)

    1. Thank you Deb - I always forget about the bottle of lemon oil in my kitchen cupboards

  4. I love adding olives to my salads. I am not familiar with marrow but I assume it is some sort of squash. Everything looks delicious.

    1. Judee - olives do add a certain picquancy. Yes marrow is perhaps known as Summer Squash where you are.

  5. Looks like a nice combination.
