This was incredibly easy and quick to make, ideal for a busy day at work as its simple to prepare.
I have never had capers before and was put off because they do not appear to be appetising however they were really nice and added a nice pickled flavour to the dish. I shall be making this again, but maybe experiment a little :-)

This looks a nice easy mid week salad. Will probably use chopped chives instead of spring onions, as I'm not keen on them.
