Summer venison delight
( SERVES 4 )
This is great for when friends come over unexpectdly in summer time and you dont feel like slaving over a hot BBQ. It looks amazing on the plate, is so coulourful and the dressing is very delicate but flavoursome. I often make lots of the dressing and keep it in a jar in the fridge for weeks on end. Its great drizzled over chicken, beef or roast veges too!!
