    Uncharacteristic for her recipes, there were a lot of steps involved to make this salad (lots of washing up!), albeit all of them simple. Unfortunately, for all the effort, the combination of textures & flavours didn't especially wow us. A bit more crunch might change this, with the radish/carrot variation sounding like a good idea.

    This is a lovely salad. It was really easy to make and was very tasty. I made it with the peppers and sugar snap peas, but instead of shiitake mushrooms I added carrot and radish to the salad leaves (as suggested as a variation). I liked the extra crunch that this added.
