Really didn't like this very much at all, we thought it was very average, probably wont make again.

Cooked this on Friday as a main dish (with added chicken). It was delicious. As mentioned by others, it's best to serve the potatoes and broccoli warm. Also, best to use stem broccoli, as it gets less 'wet'. I also added cold plum tomatoes and baby spinach, and swapped dill for basil. Lots of lemon and black pepper make this a real (healthy) treat.

I don't like dill, so I used fresh thyme. Worked a treat.

Such a great meal to throw together after work. I used asparagus instead of green beans which worked really well. Used too much lemon the first time which made it too acidic so I've learnt that less is more. The flavours are wonderful and it's inexpensive

very nice, the lemon makes it so good! would recommend doing the potatoes for longer and they were still a bit hard. i also warmed mine up, it was good! great for work.

Made this last night, really lovely! Flavours went well together, healthy and light but only just enough for 3. Would make a lovely lunch to take to work too! Will make again!

Great salad! Would agree that it is better served with warm potatoes/beans/broccoli. Lemon flavours go really well with the goats cheese. Will defo do again.

This wasn't amazing but it was quick and easy which is you want during the week.

I served it warm by adding warm pots and veg to a frying pan with melted butter (instead of oil) lime (had no lemon) and dill. Added goats cheese til just started to melt and served with pin nuts scattered on top. Scrummy

We loved this and it has already become a quick and tasty favourite - I have done it at home with crusty bread and also taken into work for a tasty packed lunch (although it does need to be taken out of the fridge as suggested). The ingredients are quite ordinary but when combined make it really tasty - think the dill really contributes to this. Always on the look out for quick and healthy 'salad' type lunches and this fits the bill. My daughter said it's one of the best we've had in a while!

This was quite tasty, largely on account of the goats' cheese, but I didn't find it outstanding.
