Smoked Salmon & Green Asparagus Salad

Serves 1 for lunch

I just made this one up as I went along, of course I had done the shopping the day before and new I wanted to eat a delicious salads for the coming week. I had also bought soem fresh herbs for in the kitchen such as mint, rosemary and Greek basil. I love their perfume wafting through the kitchen every time I walk in. Always brings back memories from my childhood when my mother used to have herbs in her kitchen.


  • handful of lettuce leaves
  • mixed bean sprouts enough to lightly cover the lettuce (radish, alfalfa, clover & broccoli)
  • 4 thin slices of a red onion
  • 3 green asparagus, tail end broken off
  • 1 slice of smoked salmon, cut into small strips
  • 2 poached eggs (or 1 if you are more weight concious)
  • s&p to taste
  • lug of olive oil (I never do exact measurements here, I just sprinkle it over the top)
  • balsamic vinegar (same as oil but less)
  • snippet of Greek basil
  • mixed salad seeds


  1. In a pretty sexy salad bowl add the lettuce leaves, bean sprouts, onion slices and the smoked slamon which you cut up into small strips.
  2. Bring a small pan of water to the boil adn once boiling away add the asparagus and and lower the heat and simmer for 3 minutes, lift them out and use the water to poach your eggs.
  3. Poach your eggs for 2 minutes. Google on youtube how to poach an egg.
  4. Whilst your eggs are poaching cut up the asparagus in 4 bite size pieces and add to your salad
  5. pour on the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  6. pop the poached eggs on top and sprinkle with s&p and the salad seed mixture and then to finish it off snip some Greek basil over the top…. and hey presto you have created a beautiful healthy nutricious lunch.
