This looks so attractive when it is ready to serve that there's no need for any garnish. From simply seasonal by Claire Macdonald, don't be put off by long ingredient list it is really easy.

I really enjoyed this recipe. You need to let it get cold for the flavors to meld. This has a little kick to it that we enjoyed. Followed your advice and served it with a salad and bread and rice. Made for ZWT5.
