Great salad. Would recommend, I added extra spice and there was even enough for lunch for the next day.

Really tasty salad! I used a bit more ras-el-hanout and I'm glad I did - nice and spicy! I skipped the pomegranate seeds and agree with the other comment that dried cranberries could be used instead. Will definitely make this again.

After trekking round town for most of an afternoon I gave up trying to find pomegranate seeds and used dried cranberries instead. That worked well and the recipe is easy and tasty.

This was really delicious but absolutely enormous servings - and my husband and I aren't usually known for our small appetites! Luckily, leftovers were a great lunch. Definitely one to make again!

Great salad, very filling, tasty and colourful! Can really use whatever veg you have to use up! I ate as a main but would be great as a BBQ side dish

This salad would have been delicious if not for the 4 Tablespoons of balsamic... The vegetables were delicious until I added the vinegar and then the whole salad just tasted like vinegar.. In the picture, it does not even look like balsamic vinegar has been added, certainly not 4 Tablespoons. Maybe try with 1 or 2 first or place vinegar on the table & add to taste.
