    I agree that the prep for this salad doesn’t need a ‘warning’! It was delicious. I made it for Christmas Day and it was fantastic. I used haloumi instead of Manouri and it was absolutely fine.

    Just the roasted tomatoes are great to have on hand

    I've had my eye on this recipe for a couple of weeks....just waiting until I had the right mix of vegetables and a little bit of time. Do not be put off by the early warning in the instructions which indicates that there is a fair amount of prep time for the individual vegetables. I didn't find that to be the case compared to anything else that I might make, especially for a complex salad. It's definitely worth the time. I did make some substitutions to the recipe to fit what I had on hand and collected: locally-produced goat cheese instead of the manouri and the addition of oven-roasted edamame instead of the second courgettes (zucchini). I also did the charring on the grill instead of a griddle pan. This was an immediate hit and it's gorgeous and inviting. The basil dressing is nice with the garlic and I used my good olive oil for this one.

    Well worth making, a good summer dish. I find that baby spinach works better than rocket.

    What a delightful combination...I did find the dish a tad too oily for my liking (and I did not even use the full amount of olive oil stated in the recipe). Would recommend that less oil be used.
