Lovely recipe! Replaced cucumber for griddled courgette as my husband can't eat cucumber. Kids loved it too, a definite hit.

Disappointed. Altho my kids and i like the ingredients individually....this combined reciepe, not good. Didnt use the orange juice, would that have made it hugely tastier, doubt it. Wont make again as couldnt eat it!
