Quick, easy, tasty and adaptable. Not quite sure about the nutrition information, that certainly isn't a zero fibre meal.

Very tasty and simple to prepare. Tried per the recipe but can see all sorts of variations would be possible. Definitely one I will be doing again.

Lovely salad, made it to take away at work for lunch so I didn't bother with warming the mushrooms, I added them raw. I also put feta cheese and a variety of seasonal greens.

Lovely salad. Made it and served it as an entree at a dinner party. Added parsley which worked well with the dressing, and used feta cheese instead of goats cheese. Is easy to make. Will definately make again.
