I halved the amounts and served the salad with lambs liver. It was delicious.

I used mayonnaise rather than oil. Delicious.

Really enjoyed this. Wasn't sure the flavours would work but they go together beautifully. I did use less mint than the recipe suggests as I didn't want it to be overpowering. Had it with some sliced chorizo as a sort of mezze platter and it was gorgeous. Thoroughly recommend.
