Very good, easy to make and looks very impressive! Served with French stick and homemade (well breadmaker-made) tomato and parmesan bread. Will make again.

Easy and can be made ahead but looks very impressive once the pomegranate seeds and chives added. Forgot to add the drizzle till it was nearly finished but everyone said the drizzle made it even bettr. Served with walnut bread.

I actually gave the recipe 5 stars but for some reason it's only showing 4 - definately worth 5!

This has to be my number 1 recipe. It takes minutes to make and tastes fantastic. If you're having a dinner party and want to impress then make this - and the best bit is that there's no cooking involved. Bargain!!!!
