    Only had white onion and 1 lemon and 1 line. Really enjoyed the salad though and we had it with a selection of curries

    Made this to go with Mediterranean kebabs with a cous cous base. It added a lovely texture to the dish with a hint of heat from the chilli. All the family loved it and will re use again with lots of other dishes as a side.

    Really fresh tasting the dressing allows the veg to shine and doesn't overpower will definitely make again

    Used ordinary onion instead of red ones, and we tried out white radishes for the 1st time. Also used lemon instead of lime juice but I think the resulting salad is still a nice blend of fresh flavours that went well with Tandoori chicken.

    Really nice and refreshing. I left out the mustard seeds as I didn't have any in the house at the time. I agree with Emma's comment that it is best eaten on the day as the leftovers were soggy.

    I made this yesterday and everyone really loved it! I didn't have any mustard seeds so just added a spoonful of wholegrain mustard to the dressing instead. It did go quite soggy in the fridge overnight so is best eaten on the day of making.
