This is a great dish for Barbecue's , can be made the day before and will serve 8 - 12 people. 


Chop the ingredients into small pieces so as they press together tightly and bind together. Ingredients can be varied depending on likes and dislikes, just keep away from anything too moist as this will make the mixture too sloppy and stop it from binding together.

Try different herbs and spices, there are so many different combinations .....

You can fill the center with a nice bright green finely chopped Granny Smith Apple , just gives it that sharp contrasting taste

If you do not have a ring mould just press the mixture into a basin.
