    Quick Roast Salmon-Makes a Great Salad

    Yesterday I did a blog on Quick Roasted Salmon. I was very pleased with it.
    We were off to see Bic Runga last night. She was performing at the Cathedral in Parnell.
    By the way, it was a very enjoyable concert.
    I wanted to make a quick dinner using the salmon.
    This salad...
    So so simple and very very tasty

    The amount below, fed two of us
    Piece of roasted Salmon click here
    1/2 red onion finely sliced
    About 9 cms of Cucumber. seeds removed
    3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2 cm cubes
    1 stick of celery, chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped chives
    Lettuce. I used Iceberg, I still like it's crunchiness.

    French dressing
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon mustard
    Sea salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 tsp sugar...just to cut the acidity a little
    Whisk together

    Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water till just tender
    drain and toss with a little of the dressing
    Add celery and chives

    Meanwhile marinate the onions and cucumber
    Best to marinate for at least 2 hours
    this takes the sharpness from the onions

    So when you are ready. 
    Rip the lettuce into bite size pieces
    Place the potatoes and celery over the lettuce
    Throw onions and cucumber on top
    Finally, break up the salmon and place that around as well
    Drizzle the rest of the dressing over the salad
    Perfect for a quick meal
