Succulent hot-smoked salmon mingles with zingy vinaigrette in this super summer salad

Hot smoked salmon salad

Enjoy a simple citrus vinaigrette drizzled over fluffy quinoa, light greens, fragrant dill and flaked hot-smoked salmon.

Serves 4. Gluten-free & dairy-free


For the salad:

180g quinoa

500ml stock

4 spring onions

½ a cucumber

A large handful of fresh dill

100g lettuce

140g hot-smoked salmon

30g mixed seeds, toasted

For the dressing:

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp Dijon mustard

60ml olive oil

Sea salt and pepper


Add the quinoa and stock to a saucepan on medium heat. Pop the lid on and cook until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Take it off the heat and leave it to steam with the lid on for 5 minutes, then let it cool.

Slice the spring onions and cucumber and add them to your serving bowl. Roughly chop the dill and add it in along with the salad greens.

Tear the salmon into smaller pieces and add it to the bowl with the cool quinoa.

Whisk together the dressing ingredients, drizzle it over the salad, sprinkle on the toasted seeds and toss well.
