Christmas Salad ...so colourful


Your guests will delight in eating this colourful lunch or dinner starter. It's light and bright, and made with gorgeous smoked salmon, avocado and clementines.

Ingredients:
Serves 10
6 clementines, peeled

120g smoked salmon, torn into pieces

1 tbsp olive oil, for drizzling

Method:
1. Slice each clementine horizontally into thirds. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh from each avocado half and slice evenly.
2. Toss the clementines and avocado with the watercress and scatter on a plate.
3. Top with the salmon.
4. Drizzle with freshly squeezed lemon juice and olive oil, and sprinkle on freshly ground black pepper.

Each serving provides:
3.6g carbohydrate 0.5g fibre 4.3g protein 10.1g fat

From an original idea here

Watercress with its deep green leaves, and crisp, paler stems, is related to mustard and is one of the strongest-tasting salad leaves available. It has a pungent, slightly bitter, peppery flavour and is highly nutritious, containing significant amounts of iron, calcium, vitamins A, C and E. It's usually sold in either bunches or bags, and is good combined in a salad with milder leaves, or made into soup.

Hope you may enjoy a plate of this colourful salad ...

All the best Jan
