Had this as our starter for New Years day the second year in a row and our guests loved it. We served on Jacob's salt and pepper thins and could have just devoured this all day! Definitely a keeper

I served this lovely starter to friends for a pre Christmas celebration. I was able to prepare in advance which made the whole occasion more relaxed. I added some chilli sauce to the dressing and a green salad with slices of advocado and this enhanced the overall presentation and textureto the dish. Easy - just the job. Will make again.

Lovely, easy recipe and with some lovely presentation makes for an impressive starter. We even had it a light fish starter on christmas day but perfect in summer to!

A simple to prepare and simply delicious recipe! Dried herbs work just as well as fresh if you can't get fresh. The aioli is scrumptious either way.
