About this recipe: "This makes a fantastic veggie meal and it’s ready in less than 15 minutes! This salad is full of great texture, from the sweet crispiness of the iceberg lettuce to the crunchy carrot and courgette ribbons. Iceberg is really versatile and is a lettuce which is great in both hot and cold dishes.”
