This was lovely, the dressing had a yummy zing to it. Randomly I served it with a marinaded Mexican inspired chicken dish...worked very well indeed!

Lovely salad, the dressing was gorgeous and it's really easy to throw together. I made it to accompany the pulled lamb shoulder with pomegranate glaze and it was super!

This is a lovely salad which I serve either alone, or served along meats/BBQ- although the quantities need to be doubled if serving for a party; its fab- give it a go!!
