Salmon and Lentil Salad

Friday, July 26




London Weather you have continued astound me this week!

I think it's been four weeks now that you have treated us to such glorious sunshine day after day?

Thank you.

On Wednesday evening, Nix came around for dinner and I made a great summery salad for us to to have out on our balcony.

Pretty healthy too.

My photography skills above don't make the ingredients the easiest to decipher-but it was delicious.

Salmon and Lentil Salad with Mint Yoghurt dressing:

Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cups Puy Lentils
Salmon Fillets (we had 4 between 3 of us)
Cherry tomatoes
Green beans (I could only find yellow ones)
Avocado
Tub of Plain/Greek Yoghurt
Mint
Flat leaf Parsley
3 Lemons
1 clove of garlic crushed

Method:

Boil the lentils for 15 minutes, then drain and season with the juice of one lemon and the crushed garlic.

Whilst the lentils are cooking, place the salmon fillets in tin foil, with a bit of butter and fresh lemon juice, and cook for 10 minutes at 180'c fan oven.  Then open the foil for a further 5 minutes.

Boil the beans for 5 -8 minutes.

Chop up a handful of mint, and stir it into the yoghurt, and squeeze some lemon juice in too.
Season to taste.

Cut up your tomatoes and avo and add to salad.
(place them all on one edge of the salad if your husband doesn't eat them...) 

Sprinkle the parsley over the top.

Pour some of the yoghurt dressing over the top of the salad, and have some more in a bowl to add as you would like to, too.

Serve with wedges of fresh lemon.

And Enjoy!
