So easy to make and really delicious. I used rocket salad which added a nice pepper flavour. Yummy!

This went down a storm at a dinner party for 10. I made mine in individual ramekins, which made all 10 a lot easier to refrigerate before hand. The dressing was added just before serving. Delicious. There was also a lot of lime dressing left over at the end, which tastes good added to stir fry's!

Perfect for a dinner party as you can make it ahead of time, everyone loved this, including people who are a bit fussy with flavours.

Never thought I could prepare something delicate, light and extremely impressive. I can now. Even my cat could do it. Excellent.

Great starter, easily assembled and adapted for larger numbers. Both the horseradish cream and vinigrette were outstanding. For me a real top drawer starter, and yet incredably easy.

Brilliant! Tasty, quick and easy to prepare ahead of time. Everyone loved it. Horseradish in creme fraiche was really lovely - will definitely be using that in other recipes as well.

I served this at a dinner party for eight and it went down a storm. I have never received such a fantastic response from ALL my guests before. I cooked Gordon Ramseys Beef Wellington for the main course and Blueberry cheesecake pots. The whole meal was a huge success. Thank you GF
