This is a lovely side dish.. I use parsley or coriander instead of mint simply because I really don't like mint

Tasty and refreshing salad! It's easy to make and you can surprise your guests with it. Especially good after playing sports or a long day at work/school. Furthermore I think that it's not enough for 6 persons (I would say 2 or 3, maybe 4 as a small side-salad).

Really love this salad - herby, nutty, fruity and fresh, looks and tastes great and a doddle to make. We had it with bbq fish (swordfish, salmon and sea bream). I too had lots of dressing left over - I'm glad I didn't use it all otherwise I think it would have made the salad leaves soggy. You could probably manage with half the ingredients for the dressing or, like us, make up another salad the next day to use it up.

This made a beautiful - and simple - accompaniment to a Moroccan chicken dish.

Absolutely delicious with the accompanying recipes of lamb and potatoes. The pomegranate and pistachios makes the salad look great as well as taste amazing.

Really tasty salad, I'm not overly keen on pomegranate, but this was gorgeous, had lots of dressing left over, but maybe I was a bit slapdash with measurments! Had this with roast lamb and potatoes with onions and dill for a late Sunday lunch and it made a lovely change.
