Indifferent to pressure in new diet (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tepid

'indifferent' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'pressure in new diet' is the wordplay.
'pressure' becomes 'p' (abbreviation).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'new' indicates anagramming the letters.
'diet' is an anagram of 'teid'.
'p' placed inside 'teid' is 'TEPID'.

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for tepid that I've seen before include "without passion" , "Luke warm" , "Slightly warm" , "Not very warm (water)" , "Of liquid, luke-warm" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
