Great for its simplicity and versatility. Works as it is or goes well with fish, chicken or cheese. A great BBQ side or buffet dish

I really liked this salad. I put a bit more cumin than suggested because I love cumin. I want to try with cucumber because I think that would be amazing too. Mum polished it off really quickly too.

I really like this recipe and I'm not a fan of zero meat. Next time I would probably use only half a red onion. Gonna chuck in some tuna fore my lunches next week.

I made this over the weekend and although I'm not a huge fan of raw tomatoes, it was stunning. Easy to make, super fresh and works a treat accompanied by a nice bit of fish.

This turned out well. Made it the day before and allowed it to marinade overnight. I too am not so keen on raw onion, but diced it very small and it definitely added to the flavours. Didn't have cumin, so added paprika to dressing.

Added tuna and this made a lovely wrap filling! I reckon it'd be tasty with some chopped olives and feta as a vege version, so will give that a go too. Not normally a fan of raw onion but I chopped it up small and the flavours were all very fresh and vibrant.

I agree with Miss_Micvicar I think adding the feta really makes the difference between being good and brilliant.
