This is one of my favourite lunchtime meals, although I have given the amounts for about one serving I usually make quite a lot of it and keep it in the fridge if I want some more. It is vegetarian as the anchovies are optional and the salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar and oil are all up to your own taste.
