    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
