re Georgelikescakes - I think it's the avocado. Pity, it looked so good.

Is the nutritional imformation on this correct? Seems extraordinarily high and I can't see what makes it so!

I always make sure I have tins of tuna and mixed pulses in the cupboard now so that I can make this when I need a quick, healthy dinner or lunch. I use a teaspoon of pesto instead of french dressing which is really tasty.
