This is a delicious recipe... Couldn't buy the asparagus so I used green beans instead... Did this for 2 but used the same amount of sauceas recomended by the recipe... Was gorgeous! Didn't smoke the salmon but cooked it in the microwave for 3 mins...

Beautiful in both senses - tasted gorgeous and looked fantastic too. Grandma said it was the best thing she'd seen since she saw Kenneth Branagh topless in Othello!

Bluebird- of course it's healthy! A little olive oil never killed anyone!

This is so delicious - not a healthy option though because of the dressing but who cares! Made it for girls dinner party and was loved by everyone, omitted mint (as got bagged salad with rocket so wasn't sure how it would work together) and asparagus as didn't have any and it worked beautifully (leftovers tasted even better the following day when all the dressing got soaked up by the leaves) can thoroughly recommend! Looks stunning too!

Cooked this for Easter lunch and it went down a storm! The flavours are fantastic.

This looks wonderful and would make a yummy summer lunch al fresco. Can't wait to try it. I can also see it using smoked duck breast, which my 10-yr old grand-daughter loves and she's not a fish eater unless it has batter round it!! Roll on summer!

Made this for a girlie lunch at the weekend. One of the girls doesn't like fish!!!! so I used Chicken breasts basted in harissa and baked in the oven instead. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect with a cold glass of rose - felt so sanctimonious even allowed room for dessert

Fabulous dish. Just right for the hottest day of the year with light, fresh flavours but still substantial enough to be filling. For a large main course for 2 people we used about 10 Jersey Royal potatoes, 6/8 spears of English asparagus. c. 200g radishes, loads of parsley & mint, 4 spring onions, and 2 chillis in the dressing. Definitely a recipe for the binder and will make again.

Great dish. Surprisingly filling enough that my husband didn't complain about having salad for dinner! Will try it with chicken next time.
