Incredible. Truly addictive.
We simply loved this salad. It was amazing how all the flavours just came together to create a dish that was really difficult to stop eating! The texture is also divine...firm but not crunchy. Will be making this many more times!
Loved the flavors of this side as did our guests, even some picky eaters. I did lighten this a bit by replacing half the oil with fat-free chicken broth. This is great for a potluck as you can prepare it well in advance and just go. Also, while it has lots of lovely flavors none of them are so strong that you could put this next to lots of other dishes.
