Made this as I was trying to use up my courgette glut. Tasted ok but could do with other veg adding, such as peppers or thinly sliced carrot. - 16 Aug 2015


Sorry but wasn't for me. Found it incredibly bland even after doubling the garlic and lemon. - 16 Aug 2014


This has a nice, light, lemon garlic flavour, and makes a pretty salad, and so easy to make! - 04 Jun 2014
