One of my favourites; I've made it several times and I find the taste really refreshing and zingy.

Really acidic, seriously lacking in any flavour complexity. Couldn't eat it and I'll eat pretty much anything! Are these recipes *actually* tested properly? It seems that there's quite a few from this most recent diet plan that are of pretty poor standard.

I don't know what went wrong on this one, I followed the recipe but the taste was awful, it's the first one that I honestly disliked.
