Tip

Herbs, nuts and green vegetables can all be substituted for others of similar nature. I have also added sundried tomatos at the end with feta. Olive oil can be used instead of the macadamia nut oil. Great cold as a salad for lunch the next day!

  • Yum, very nice.  I didnt use

    Yum, very nice.  I didnt use chicken, so the first 20 minutes was enough.  I put the veges into the steamer when it had 10 minutes to go.   We had chicken kebabs with it.  Probably be nice to try with cous cous too.

    Wow! 5 out of 6 in our family ate it on the first try!

    As we can't have nuts, changed them for pepitas.

    Will make this one again.

  • Loved this dish. My dressing

    Submitted by triinabiina on 15. January 2014 - 19:50.

    Loved this dish. My dressing wasn't very runny might have used too many nuts but didn't make a difference, still tasted great. The Feta was a really good touch. Definitely going to be a regular.

    Submitted by AniTess on 21. November 2013 - 13:52.

    This was really yummy! I think I used too many nuts in the dressing as it came out pretty solid but used some natural yoghurt  to make it a more dressing like consistency and it was delicious. I also served with a little more yoghurt and some mango chutney. Will definately make this again, thanks for sharing :)
