    It is delicious Kim and behind the deliciousness is, you burn off more calories eating it than you take in! lol And for some reason, even though all the vegies kids loathe are in it, they just love it! ( I do make a chili free version for kids)

    I will probably make it next weekend I think!

    My kid wouldn't eat it, he is the world's fussiest eater, and won't eat "little" bits of anything, pieces have to be above a certain size before he will consider eating them. Anything pea sized gives him the heebie jeebies! :rolleyes:

    I am talking little kids here.. those who will not usually touch onion or capsicum or heaven forbid, broccoli! I tried it out on a friend's son (he's 7) whose veg intake to that point was Macca's or KFC fries. He said he liked it because it was crunchy and he specifically liked the red and green bits. I told him what was in it after he had 4 serves of it...lol and he went the colour of parchment with his jaw near hitting the floor! LOL! Despite that, when they come over he always asks me if I made the "mini" salad. When we know they are coming, rather than a drop in, I usually do and he scoffs it down each and every time. *shrug* I am still at a loss why! lol

    Sounds awesome, my wife and I are always looking for more salad ideas especially in the summer months. About the vinaigrette, is it possible to do without the garlic, or what would be a suitable replacement for garlic? My wife can't stand garlic sadly.

    Hi JR,

    Garlic is not needed at all. Some fresh lemon thyme is nice in it, as is parsley. It's up to you to make it your own and fit it to your tastebuds. A friend who makes it puts in a little Dijon mustard to add more zing over adding garlic and she does not use chili infused olive oil, but rather extra virgin olive oil.
