Really moreish. Make more than you think you need because it will go. 4 of us easily get through this. It is also nice with some roasted garlic done unpeeled then squeezed into the dressing and poured over and some toasted flaked almonds, which is lovey with trout

As suggested, this does go really well with fish. I served it alongside the zesty salmon and cod and garlic fondant potatoes.
