Tasty, healthy and super quick! Would look great at a BBQ. I added a diced and roasted butternut squash to bulk it out but kept the other ingredients the same and I didn't find it too oily (as in previous comments). I didn't use any coriander. My husband said he'd have preferred it if the onion had been cooked, but I liked it and the remainder is now packed up as tomorrow's lunch... With houmous on wholemeal pitta.

Lovely fresh tasting salad, I served the dressing on the side for people to help themselves as I wasn't too keen on it, maybe too much olive oil? Having said that my husband loved it - each to their own. Will definately make again..

There was too much olive oil in the dressing which overpowered the taste. Would recommend reducing the quantity of it.
