Julieanne Reilly entered this delicious starter into our Mum's Best Dish competition. She says: 'This is my Mum's favourite dish, we have it for lunch and it is perfect as a starter for dinner. Everyone loves it because it's so tasty!' This salad-like starter doesn't have exact measurements so you will be able to adapt it to your situation. It's just as lovely as a posh lunch for one as it is a start for the family.
