made this for a quick family tea, thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children (aged 9, 7, 5, 3)

Very quick and easy. I used peppered hot smoked salmon as they only had that or sweet chilli salmon in my supermarket, I think the extra pepper balanced the cream and stopped it being too sickly. Salad dressing was nice with the citrus flavours but I tried three supermarkets and a health food shop and everyone was out of stock of poppy seeds so we had to do without!

I found this recipe too rich and a little cloying, although the salad helped to cut through the creamy sauce.

This was delicious and loved by all the family, I made the (rather expensive) hot smoked salmon go a little further by throwing in some strips of ham - unconventional but it seemed to work for us!
