Very godd and simple recipe. I threw in chunked yellow squash as supermarket had no zucchini (courgette). They worked well; soaked up a lot of the other flavours. I'll probably try leaving out the tomatoes next time as they went a tad too squishy and looked a bit messy in the dish.

I LOVE IT ! Quick Easy Cheap Healthy Low Fat - I did not know it was so easy to be healthy.

Made something very similar with what I had in the veggie box, substituting green pepper for red and using only one courgette. The roast veggies were lovely. Used only one can of chickpeas and that was plenty. Very nice and went well with the spinach pies we had. I had the brilliant idea of serving it neither hot nor cold, more of a room-temperature, but it wasn't as nice as I'd thought. Next time I'd serve it hot.

Excellent, we used ordinary yellow onions and green peppers then added some aubergines. VERY filling and I expect healthy too.

The loveliest salad ever!

So so nice and really healthy. I roasted the veg in spray oil and then only used 2tbsp oil in the dressing to reduce the calorie content right down. This is going to be a new favourite

very tasty. I'll try with different vegs, too!

My husband and I have made this over and over, and we love it, but we have it hot. We use tinned tomatoes for those times when we don't have any fresh ones on hand, and we also sometimes use roasted peppers from a jar. White onions or red onions, regular size or scallions, it's still delicious. I use herbes de Provence instead of parsley, emmenthal or Maasdam instead of feta, and no matter the variation, it's always finished up either the same night it's prepared or as a box lunch the next day. Good stuff! (And I've got some in the oven right now!)

This is fantastic. It's the tastiest, most nutritious and colourful salad I've had in years, and very easy to put together. I didn't have any chives so I just used lots of parsley and mint, and it was beautiful. I made a big batch with the intention of having some cold over the following couple of days, but guess what happened...!
