Method

  1. Chop half the olives (set the rest aside), then mix with the remaining dressing ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Boil the green beans for 5 mins, then refresh under cold water. Put the eggs in cold water, bring to the boil, then cook for 5 mins. Cool, shell and halve or quarter.
  3. Heat the lentils in the microwave for 2 mins per pack. Tip into a bowl and toss with the tomatoes, most of the dressing, the whole olives and green beans. Arrange eggs and salmon on top, scatter with the rocket and finish with remaining dressing. Serve with crusty bread.

This was really nice. I used petits pois instead of beans but otherwise followed the recipe.

I couldn't get rocket so used watercress instead. The whole family loved this meal. I'm veggie so served the fish with a little dressing separately. It really was delicious.

delicious....I served this for a healthy yet hearty lunch and it went down a treat. I added some asparagus too. The dressing is lovely and tangy and really compliments the salmon and greens. Definately make this again.

This recipe is brilliant. I poached the salmon specifically so that I could make it and it's lovely. You need really crusty bread and some wine and it's a perfect meal for a weekday casual dinner party.

I cooked fresh lentils and added the dressing while they were still warm. A lovely left-over salmon recipe will certainly cook it again.

forgot to say most of the products are fresh from the garden even our own eggs so fresh produce gives it the wow factor !!!!!!!!!!!

All good ingredient but no yum factor, which was disappointing. Wouldn't do it twice.

I halved the recipe. Cooked fresh lentils and omitted the salmon. I served it with grilled steak and a small jacket potato - there was enough for 2 hungry blokes with leftovers for lunch. Tasted fantastic- having it again at the weekend with a barbie.

I went to make this salad thinking I had olives, but unfortunately not! Really liked the capers and basil in the dressing & also added a squeeze of lemon juice.
