Ghana Salad from Zoe's Ghana Kitchen

READY IN: 25mins




  • Preheat the grill to medium. Place the sardines and tuna steak on the grill rack and grill for 10 - 15 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time. Leave to cool, then chill in the fridge before adding to the salad.
  • Place the lettuce, tomatoes and onions in a large bowl, then add the green beans, peas, cannellini beans and smoked salmon.
  • Flake the grilled tuna and add to the salad, season with the sea salt and black pepper and mix together carefully. Add the grilled sardines and garnish with the soft-boiled egg quarters.
  • Cover and chill before serving. When ready to serve, dress with salad cream or mayonnaise to taste and serve with warm toasted baguette, ciabatta or hard dough bread.
  • Tips:
  • I used to drown my Ghana Salad in salad cream – guilty pleasures – but if you want a healthier option, make a vinaigrette of 3 parts olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar and season with sea salt and black pepper, then add to the salad before serving.
  • Hard dough bread (also known as 'butter bread') is a white loaf that is slightly sweet. It can be bought sliced or unsliced.
