    Really enjoyed this recipe! The kids were not fond of it but I found it very filling. I love that it's not drenched in dressing. Just as good the next day! Will definitely make again.

    Made this to take to a BBQ party and it was a big hit! Went very well with the BBQ chicken. Added orange and yellow sweet peppers for more colour and toasted pine nuts. Delicious! Made a double batch and very little left overs. Will definitely make again--as very quick and easy to put together.
