This is one of the best starters ever! Able to get dressing and horse radish mix ready and put in fridge to easily assemble just before needed. Everyone loved this and will be using again soon I hope!

Made this on Christmas Day and what a success! Made up the dressing and horseradish cream the night before so it was so quick and easy to assemble on the day! Added some avocado slices to each plate and my guests loved it.

I plan to make this as a starter on Christmas day as it is light, tasty and the dressing can be made up in advance for a quick plate up. I prefer the creme fraiche and horseradish sauce from the Mustard Salmon and Veg bake GoodFood recipe.
