Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Put all the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl.

Mix together the olive oil and vinegar or lemon juice and salt and pepper in a jar. Put the lid on and shake it well.

Then pour the dressing onto the other ingredients and mix together.
