Fruity summer salmon salad!


One of the things I am enjoying most about Slimming World is the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables I have been eating. It is costing me a small fortune in berries and cherries to keep the fridge stocked but a punnet disappears almost as soon as I buy them!

I love having fruit with something savoury and the first taste of this reminded me of a visit to a little restaurant in Dunmore East when I was a teenager. It was my first taste of duck with roasted plums and it has stayed with me to this day. I often wonder is that little restaurant still there, it was up a flight of steps if I remember correctly. I recall feeling very grown up ordering the duck!


Ok enough about the duck because today I am blogging about Salmon! I made this for lunch yesterday and it was so incredibly tasty I wanted to share it with you. Thrown together in five minutes it is the perfect lazy summer lunch or would make a great easy starter for a dinner party.

What you need for 1 serving;

  • a hot smoked salmon fillet
  • 2 juicy oranges which you have segmented (tutorial here)
  • 1 paraguayos peach (these are the delicious juicy squashed looking peaches)
  • A handful of wild rocket
  • A sprinkle of black pepper and salt


So simply assemble and enjoy! I reserved the remainder of the orange flesh and squeezed it over the dish to give it a delicious citrus tang.


So there you have it, my taste of summer on a plate and to all my Slimming World pals this is a FREE lunch so you can eat as much as you like!

Things I am loving this week!

I am loving Easy Food magazine as they have featured me as their favourite blogger of the month! So delighted! I have always been a big fan of the magazine which does a fantastic job of championing Irish food and producers!
