Simple, easy, and great flavor. I used wild Alaskan sockeye salmon.

I absolutely loved this recipe. Delicious. The crunchy corn goes so well with the creamy potatoes. I didn't have any large tomatoes so used cherry ones but it was lovely, better I think than the beefsteak ones would be. I will definitely make this again.

I made this for my first dinner party (thankfully only the immediate family, but still 7 of us). I made it with Salmon cutlets and tinned sweetcorn and it was delicious. I doubled up the quantities but needed to add more oil to the dressing as it was over "vinegar-y" Other than that a real success.

Simple to make, and the dressing is surprisingly delicious.

I used tinned sweetcorn instead of corn on the cob and tomatoes from our greenhouse. A great summer dish, quick and tasty.
