This is so delicious - not a healthy option though because of the dressing but who cares! Made it for girls dinner party and was loved by everyone, omitted mint (as got bagged salad with rocket so wasn't sure how it would work together) and asparagus as didn't have any and it worked beautifully (leftovers tasted even better the following day when all the dressing got soaked up by the leaves) can thoroughly recommend! Looks stunning too!

This looks wonderful and would make a yummy summer lunch al fresco. Can't wait to try it. I can also see it using smoked duck breast, which my 10-yr old grand-daughter loves and she's not a fish eater unless it has batter round it!! Roll on summer!

Made this for a girlie lunch at the weekend. One of the girls doesn't like fish!!!! so I used Chicken breasts basted in harissa and baked in the oven instead. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect with a cold glass of rose - felt so sanctimonious even allowed room for dessert
