Absolutely delicious! Will definitely be making this again! The burst of mint in this recipe makes this salad gorgeously refreshing.

Very tasty. Loved the mint. I left out the courgette and used spring onion because didn't have any red onion. Will make again.

All those comments make me regret not cooking the tikka fish but in the middle of an heat wave it's a no go. I cooked as directed but added a boiled egg per portion in the salad for some protein and will be eating that as lunch at work.

On reading everybody's comments, I think I must have done something terribly wrong, because I found this salad very boring and will never make it again.

Love this, we hate salad leaves so this was a fab salad for us. Had with the Tikka Fish - yum. First time I have made a salad dressing - so easy will never buy ready made again!

This sounds lovely. It also has courgettes in and this is a bonus as I picked 12 today and there will be more ready tomorrow.

Half the olive oil, and light mayo for a slightly healthier dressing. Absolutely delicious with the hot or cold meatloaf.
