It’s summer time and the weather is actually not too bad so with that in mind here is a great recipe for a Niçoise salad made with Salmon rather than tuna for a change. The salmon is high in good fats and protein plus the addition of the egg will keep you full all afternoon. I have used Tesco’s pre cooked sweet chilli salmon fillets. All the main shops have their own version of marinated salmon fillets but I really like these ones. There are 2 in a pack and cost £3.50/4.
2 Salmon fillets
2-3 ripe tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
2 inch piece diced cucumber
1 spring onion chopped
approx 10 boiled new potatoes 4-5 per person
2 eggs – soft boiled and halved
15-20 Black olives
Pack of steamed asparagus spears
Lettuce – mixed
Chopped parsley and dill
Salt and pepper to season
French dressing – Juice ½ lemon, 3 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar (raspberry or balsamic), 1 tsp Dijon mustard – mix well and pour over.
Chop all the salad ingredients and assemble on the plates. Add the olives and capers, season, dress and eat! Easy, quick and healthy summer eating.
