    Smoked Salmon Salad with Wasabi Dressing

    This variation on a Caesar salad combines smoked salmon, avocado and crisp salad leaves. The creamy Japanese-inspired dressing gives a little kick.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 2 Romaine heart lettuces, stalks removed, rinsed and drained
    • ½ cucumber
    • 2 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Hass Avocados, peeled, stoned and chopped
    • 140g pack Waitrose Heathland Scottish Smoked Salmon, cut into strips
    • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
    • For the dressing:
    • 1 tsp Clearspring Wasabi Powder
    • 1½ tbsp Waitrose Reduced Calorie Mayonnaise
    • 4 tbsp Waitrose Low Fat Natural Yogurt
    • 2 tsp lime juice


    1. Place the wasabi powder in a small bowl and stir in 4 tsp of warm water. Leave to stand for 2 minutes, then whisk in all the remaining dressing ingredients.
    2. Tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways then, using a teaspoon, scrape away the seeds and discard. Cut into thin slices. Add to the bowl with the avocado.
    3. Pour the dressing over and toss the ingredients together. Divide between 4 bowls. Arrange the smoked salmon over the top and scatter with the sesame seeds. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.

    Cook's tips

    Wasabi is a Japanese dried horseradish powder and should be used sparingly, although if you want a little more heat add 1 tsp more. Prepare the dressing in advance, cover and chill in the fridge until ready to use. You could replace the smoked salmon with smoked trout and the Romaine lettuce with Little Gem if you prefer.
