    To make the salad

    Simply combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and season with salt and fresh black pepper.  

    If you make this in advance (a few hours or the day before) all the flavours will combine and the salad will also take on a lovely vibrant purple colour from the beetroot.   Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve with the cooked salmon.

  • “I love this one, it is fast, easy to prepare in advance and perfect for a light supper or healthy fast lunch.”
