Yummy! I added broad beans, green beans and cherry tomatoes. I also used basil oil in my dressing as had no fresh basil and thought this was a great dish for the summer months.

This was a perfect meal for dinner on a warm summers evening. I did put in two spoons each of the mayo, mustard and honey. Just so I had a bit more dressing, after reading other people's comments about it being dry. This went down a storm though and will do it again as it was so quick and easy. It would also be perfect for picnics & BBQ's

Lovely salad! I put mustard seeds instead of mustard and also added sweetcorn. Oh and I put much less onion, and thought it was oniony enough.

I added a small tin of drained sweetcorn when I prepared the recipe for our wedding anniversary. My husband who will not eat mayo absolutely adored it!

This is lovely. Not normally a fan of mustard but the dressing was yummy. Didn't have any basil and had run out of onions so substituted with a red pepper. Have packed remainder up to take to work....can't wait :)
