  • Reviews

  • “I made this recipe a few weeks ago and must have forgotten to review it. I dont know why because this is one great salad, the flavours are so wonderful together, the only thing I did change was the amount of salt I only add half teaspoon. I took this salad to work for lunch next day and the flavours were so much better the next day.I must admit I ate the whole lot on my own, and I still could of had more!Great recipe for summer Jan.Can’t wait to plant capsicum next year for this recipe!”

  • “This is a great taste combination – I loved the blend of roasted peppers and with the cumin and the tomatoes.I found the dressing measurements to be a bit off balance- I think next time I would reduce the salt and the lemon juice, adding it only to taste.The full teaspoon of salt made this too salty and the lemon flavor was a bit too strong. Even so, it was still a very flavorful, tasty salad and I am certainly planning to prepare this again, but just adjusting the salt and lemon juice.”
