I am doing a whole series of videos on Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the low Fodmap diet, and this is the first one. It talks about the 8 symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and I explain each of the symptoms and why they happen. You can either watch it here or click through to Youtube in the bottom right-hand corner.
I asked my husband and son what they wanted for dinner and neither came up with anything coherent so I made them this dish and it met with approval. I love the flavours in this salad. I did forget to put the feta on the salad before taking the photo so you will have to imagine it scattered over the top. This is completely low Fodmap including the feta (1/2 a cup is allowed). The layers look pretty for the photo but I then tossed everything into a big bowl so I could mix through the pesto well. Not as pretty but more practical for serving.
