Not really tasty

This was surprisingly tasty. I was hesitant because I'm not keen on mustard or mayonnaise but neither flavour shone through and it tasted nice. I halved this for 2. I used 1/2 a pepper instead of radish and I didn't have any mint leaves. I also made it with the tikka fish.

Made this this evening used coriander instead of mint, because that was what I had. It was very good will definately do again. We had it with home made hummus. It made a lovely meal.

Absolutely delicious! Will definitely be making this again! The burst of mint in this recipe makes this salad gorgeously refreshing.

Very tasty. Loved the mint. I left out the courgette and used spring onion because didn't have any red onion. Will make again.

All those comments make me regret not cooking the tikka fish but in the middle of an heat wave it's a no go. I cooked as directed but added a boiled egg per portion in the salad for some protein and will be eating that as lunch at work.
