Recipe by English_Rose

This no-cook spicy salad is perfect for a supper in a flash. Adapted from BBC Good Food. Instead of salad dressing you could use a teaspoon of pesto for a more Italian flavour. Or Make it with your own salad dressing: Mix 3 tbsp olive oil with a squeeze lemon juice, then season to taste.
