Delicious! Lovely fresh flavours, slight bitterness from the chicory, saltiness from the feta and lovely bursts of sweetness from the clementine. Will definitely be making this again.

Delicious starter. Very light and fresh tasting. Made this Christmas Day to start and it went down very well. Quick and so easy to put together.

Made this for a Christmas starter last year and it went down really well. It's light so doesn't spoil your appetite for the main course. My mother in law asked for the recipe to serve at a subsequent dinner party so you can't get much better recommendation than that!

Quick and easy to put together and looks very appetising. Lovely citrus dressing. Perfect before a substantial main course.
