This is my absolute favorite salad right now, which is a very big call. It`s full of textures & sweet, smoky earthy flavours. I make a big batch of this salad at the beginning of the week and add in some steamed green beans & ripe cherry tomatoes one night, or serve it with a grilled piece of fish another. It`s great eaten as it is, or is great as part of a feasting table with grilled meats, hummus & flat breads. It takes a mere minutes to make this salad & will last 5 days in the fridge- Now that’s a great effort to reward ratio!
