    A surprisingly tasty combination! Really quick and easy to prepare and lovely dressing. However, did not follow the quantities given in the recipe for the dressing, as I thought it would be too liquidy.  -  12 May 2011


    this recipe is alright but i'm not too certain of the finished result as i had lost my glasses. i happen to know that this works well with COD instead of salmon and a dash of SUGAR and pepper, not salt. i served this with a pot of garlic butter and it really set off the flavors, delicious!  -  22 Feb 2017


    completely agree with the above comment. Easy to prepare and surprisingly tasty. I also used far less olive oil than suggested for my dressing (only 100ml), apart from that however I kept it all the same.  -  13 Aug 2016
