    We both enjoyed this. Made heaps so on the second night we added pomegranate molasses to the yoghurt dressing and served with fried haloumi which was delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

    Fantastic recipe! Super healthy - good fats, lots of greens - and loved the burst of sweetness from the cranberries. I poured the yoghurt dressing over the entire salad and worked it through. Looking forward to my lunch the next couple of days.
