Delicious..... used mixed salad leaves and baby spinach. I live in Australia and made to go with our Australian prawns. A winner with all the family.

This salad was refreshing and delicious, a wonderful combination of sweet, salty and spicy. To add a bit of texture I added some walnuts. I will definitely add this to my repertoire.

Agree the dressing is too sweet, about half the qty of honey would do the trick. But really nice otherwise and no cooking required.

The salad was great but was totally let down by the dressing, which was far too sweet. Threw it away and made my own dressing in the end.
