I make this without the lemon juice and I love it, its one of my favourite quick dinners but will definately try it with the lemon juice and the celery as someone suggested. Yum!

I'd say less red onion!

Didn't have any rocket so I left it out, also added some celery which gave it a really nice crunch.

I preferred the taste of this when it was chilled and I had it for a packed lunch the next day, instead of hot.

I left out the rocket, as I'm not a fan, but this was lovely and so fast. If you're not a big onion fan try reducing the amount or lightly cooking it first, as the flavour is quite strong.
