Toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl.


Combine the jam, lime zest and juice and oil in a small bowl or jug, then season.

Toss most of the dressing through the salad, then transfer to a large serving platter. Leave the salad to sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the flavours, then serve.
