This is SO EASY, and so quick to make, and best of all it is SO TASTEY. It looked pretty bland when I dished it up, despite the colourful veg, but the flavour of the dressing is its secret. This is the easiest recipe I've found on goodreads so far that is both wholly filling and delicious. It was so good we ate it the next night, too, but added prawns for a bit of variety.

My kids actually love taking this to school for lunch. A great base recipe with so many variations. Also add mange tout, courgette and baby corn. Asparagus is also good.

Light, quick and delicious. For my veggies I used red pepper, spring onions and spinach. The dressing is lovely!

Amazing, one of the best stir-fries I've ever had.

This was fantastic for a quick and easy Saturday lunch. The dressing is beautiful and the fresh, crunchy veggies are a great change from the usual heavy stir-fries. I tend to have most of the ingredients knocking about the pantry so this would make a good stand-bye meal, possibly with different veggies too.
