This is a delicious vegan salad that is perfect for a warm summers evening, it has a great depth of flavour which makes it perfect as a stand-alone dish. It also works well as a side, just serve in smaller portions. It is healthy, colourful and also quick and easy to make. Having a machine to matchstick the veg will make this much easier but a knife works quite well too (that’s what I used), just be careful to keep the veg nice and thin.
