Made this last night, and it was delicious! Only change I made was to reduce the amount of onion. Simple, fresh ingredients for the salad. Easy, flavourful chicken. Surprisingly filling!

Simple ingredients, super fast to make and yet totally fresh and delicious. I didn't have red wine vinegar so cut a slice of lemon and squeezed through the salad. Made this for a midweek meal with a chunk of french bread and butter. So good!

First time I've tried avocados but really liked them. Super tasty salad. We had it with pork chops tonight but almost any meat or fish would be great. Will make again

Yup good one. I used spring onion because I didn't have red, and coriander instead of parsley (er, by accident...) I served it with giant cous-cous and asparagus. For a salad dressing I shake extra-virgin olive oil, lemon balsamic vinegar (2:1), a pinch of sugar and an even smaller pinch of mustard powder. Definitely a keeper.

This was really easy to make and it's also healthy and tasty. I love avocado and tomatoes but I added spring onions as I didn't have any red onion and I also added some spinach leaves to it and a bit of cucumber then used lime juice as the dressing. Very nice and I will make it again definitely.

Yummy and surprisingly filling! 1/2 red onion is perhaps a bit too much though.
