Very tasty. Made double the amount for a dinner party for 8 and everyone had seconds, leaving none left!

The salmon didn't turn up in the shopping so I used free range chicken instead. Light and tasty.

I used sweet chilli dipping sauce in the dressing and it works really well. Simple to do and tastes fab! Have made this several times - definitely one for the binder!

This not only looks great on a plate, but tastes great too. I kept to the recipe as listed except for using dried chillie flakes in the dressing as it's easier to control the level of heat.

Hubby doesn't like smoked salmon so I made it with cooked salmon fillet that had been marinaded in terryaki marinade
Very simple and delicious - looks and tastes wonderful.

A really delicious filling salad. Gnolias - I used supermarket bunches (20g) of the herbs to serve two people - but then I really like my herbs!

We loved this and will have again. Very quick and simple to prepare.

Sounds great but I haven't tried it yet. I do have a question though, to the Good Food team or to other users: how big is a bunch of parsley? Or mint for that matter? I'm fortunate enough to live near a fantastic fruit and veg market and the bunches I get there are huge...whereas the bags you get in the supermarket are around 15-20 grams...Of course I can judge for myself how much I want to use in any recipe but I am interested in what the recipe writers mean by "a bunch"!

Lovely dressing! Although watch the chilli's - I found one was more than enough!

Made it with chicken too!

This a great recipe, even if you have a partner who gets the wrong ingredients. It still tastes great with smoked salmon and the dressing is still fab without the chilli!

A very tasty summer salad which looks great on your plate. It's always nice to find a new asparagus recipe; one more reason to eat a lot of them in the season!

This incredibly simple dish not only looks gorgeous, but tastes absolutely delicious too! I don't like Asparagus, so I substituted green beans instead.

I still make this regularly since I first posted and it never fails to be appreciated.
