Notes about this recipe

    Loved it! I felt healthy and virtuous with every bite. Easy to make on a weeknight and its really delicious too. I added some roast chicken to make it a meal. Totally agree with the previous reviewer who suggested asparagus would be nice too, I think this will be on high rotation over summer

    I didn't end up loving this salad as much as everyone else, but it was due to a serious user error--I used broccoli rabe rather than broccolini, and the bitter flavor just doesn't work well here. I'd be willing to give this another try with the correct veggie. I also think asparagus could be really nice here. I will note that the dressing turned out quite thick for me--I thinned it out with a bit of sesame oil, which was nice.

    I liked this salad and it's a great way to use beans and snow peas from the garden. The dressing is nice, however I do like my own tahini dressing better (adapted from The Cook's Garden book), so I will continue to make that dressing for this salad. I omitted the nigella seeds.

    Nice way to have a lot of tasty greens with a different and very flavorful sauce/dressing. I used less honey than suggested.

    I loved the texture, but he dressing was just a bit sweet for my taste.

    Delectable. Addictive sweet/savory vegan dressing. Recipe is also on the Guardian site. Groundnut oil=peanut oil

    mangetout = snow pea

    This is truly spectacular. Tender crisp greens with a creamy dairy free dressing. This is definately a keeper.
