Preparation

  • Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 12 minutes. Cool eggs under cold water, remove shells and soak in cold water to cool completely.
  • In a bowl, make the dressing by mixing 1½ tbsp. (22 ml) of dill with the lemon juice and oil. Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle the salmon with the rest of the dill. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan with salted boiling water, cook the green beans for 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the green beans from the boiling water and cool in very cold water. Cook the potatoes in the same water for about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool in cold water.
  • Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat.
  • Quarter the eggs. Drain the green beans and potatoes.
  • On a large serving platter, make a bed of lettuce leaves. Place vegetables on top, arranging them next to each other while alternating the colours.
  • Cook the salmon on the barbecue for 5 minutes on each side. Do the same for the cheese. Place the grilled salmon and cheese on the salad. Drizzle with dressing. Serve and share immediately.

SUGGESTION

Storage

  • The salad ingredients can be kept separately in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days. The salad should be prepared right before serving. The cooked salmon will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
