I've made this many times now and the whole family loves it - It's quick and easy, and bursting with flavour.

I love the dressing!!! but I use smoked mackerel instead of ham and different salad leaves (not a fan of a iceberg lettuce)

Very tasty salad, and excellent use of items I already have in my fridge. Added rice to make it a bit more filling, and this will now be a staple work lunch for me

This is delicious! I would never have thought to use yoghurt and horseradish but it's such a good dressing, and peas in a salad! Great idea. Have this regularly for work now.
