This is a wonderfully simple recipe, can be whipped up in less than 20 minutes (this includes chopping etc, and I'm not the quickest chopper in the world!) so perfect for a weekday dinner. It also packs well for lunch the next day. I've made it for the second time now, and I still love it. Thank you!
