French Vegetable Salad With Smoked Salmon

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Zurie

A restaurant recipe I imitated at home. Simple, honest, delicious. The quantities are not of great importance -- I simply keep to the Zaar format. If you don't feel like cutting the veggies into julienne strips, do it simpler.

this was what i was craving. thank you. i was out of green beans, but opted to add bell pepper. would like to try with avocado instead of olive oil next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Parboil the beans and carrots in a small pot in salted water for no longer than 1 - 2 minutes. Drain in a sieve under the cold-water tap, and pat dry.
  2. Mix the cider vinegar, castor sugar and mustard in a small bowl. With a whisk, gradually beat in the olive oil, and season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Put the lettuce leaves, torn up if too large, in a mixing bowl. Add the parboiled vegetables and the cucumber, and toss lightly.
  4. Then toss with just enough dressing to coat the leaves lightly.
  5. Divide among 4 plates. Top the salads with the salmon slices, each slice folded decoratively.
  6. Sprinkle with the chopped spring onions and grind over coarse black pepper.
  7. Add a lemon wedge to each plate. The leftover dressing can be passed around separately.
