replace w/cress with baby spinach leaves and use fresh poached flaked salmon and the meal steps up a notch or 3. Will be on the christmas day picnic menu this year! (I live in NZ BTW- hence the summer Xmas picnic :) )

A great midweek summer supper, I also used fresh salmon.

I followed the advice of Lynsey and put cubes of fresh salmon in the oven for 10 mins before mixing it in with the rest of the ingredients.
What I like about this recipe, and so many of the other salad suggestions on this site, is that it is so multifunctional! You can pack for a picnic, serve at a buffet, and take the leftovers to work in a tuppeware box.
I think I might try a variation with fresh tuna next time.

Very quick for mid week. I used fresh salmon (cooked in the oven) and mixed lettuce from the garden. The dressing was really tasty.
