    Serves: 4 (or 6 as a starter)


    250g new potatoes

    100g green beans, cut into 3-4cm pieces

    150g asparagus, cut into 3-4cm pieces

    100g garden peas

    200g kiln-roasted salmon, flaked

    10 cherry tomatoes, halved

    200g cucumber, cut into bite-sized pieces

    handful pea shoots

    handful mixed green leaves



    3 tbsp crème fraîche

    1 tbsp chopped dill, plus extra to serve

    1 tbsp chopped chives

    ¼ tsp freshly grated horseradish

    ½ lemon, zest and juice

    1-2 tsp whole milk (optional)


    1. In a pan, boil the potatoes for 20 minutes. Drain; set aside to cool. Refill the pan with water and bring back to the boil. Add the beans, asparagus and peas; simmer for 1 minute. Drain, refresh under cold water and pat dry with kitchen paper.

    2. In a bowl, toss the veg with the salmon, tomatoes, cucumber and leaves. Mix the dressing ingredients together in another bowl and season. (Stir in 1-2 tsp whole milk to loosen, if needed.) Fold the dressing through the salad, garnish with a little more dill and serve.
