Always a favourite in the summer, I use the fat-free set greek yoghurt which makes it really creamy.

Made this for a family BBQ and it was a talking point! Will do at every BBQ in the future.

Made this dish for a BBQ for 170 people. Very easy to do and everyone loved it - from 2 to 82 year olds. Instead of vinegar, sugar and mint I used a tablespoon of mint sauce for the proportions above. This will become one of those dishes I cook for every party gathering.

Made this a couple of weeks ago when I had a few friends over for a BBQ. It was one of the star dishes! My friends left with the recipe :) Very fresh and tasty. Thank you!

This is a superb recipe. Made this when my parents came over for lunch and they were really impressed. Had to print the recipe off for my mum, she was that pleased with it.
