Salmon Niçoise For Great Summer Skin

Serves 2

So the summer is here and its been getting HOT HOT HOT, that means we have more skin on show. To have my skin glowing from within, I love to enjoy this salmon niçoise salad a couple of times a week to keep my skin looking great all summer long.

If you didn’t know, salmon packed with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and B vitamins, protein, antioxidants and the list goes on. Salmon is amazing for your body, in so many ways from weight loss or keeping your skin looking great. So here is my variation on this salad.  

The Dressing 

As I said before this is my variation and the first difference you would see is the salad dressing I chose to do a vegan dressing using roasted garlic and cashews. I have posted about this before on my Creamy Chicken & Sweet Potato Pasta post. What you have to do is overnight soak 100g plain cashews, or until they are soft. Roast a large head of garlic, add some olive oil and dash of red wine vinegar.

Add this to a blender and blend until smooth.

  If it is still too thick just add water until you get a dressing like consistency them I second it with some salt, parsley and onion powder. let that sit to one side while to assemble the salad.

 On a tray, I squashed some new potatoes and halved some cherry tomatoes seasoned them with some salt and parsley and let that roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

Now its time to get chopping and bolling. 

I chopped up some cucumber, black olives and edamame beans I prefer to use black olives instead of anchovies and edamame beans rather than green beans. That is just for my personal reasons but if you like those you can just use them. On the side, I had two eggs boiling for 6-7 minutes. Allow them to cool then peel and cut them into quarters.

Once everything is done roasting and boiling and chopped its time to put it all together. To save time i used tined salmon but if you want to back or fry your own feel free to do so. First, I stat with my basic salade then add the cucumber and beans, then I layer on the potatoes and tomatoes lastly I sprinkle the salmon and dressing then I had one On the side, I had two eggs boiling for 6-7 minutes. Allow them to cool then peel and cut them into quartered egg and season with extra pepper if you like.
