Main

Salad can be boring and uninspired, but this recipe is anything but. I actually got this recipe from a work colleague who used to bring into the office as lunch, and let me tell you it's delicious. This is a simple to prepare salad that has a lot of flavour and that is ideal for taking to work, eating as a light snack or serving up for friends and family.
