Ingredients

Salad

400g smoked salmon, cut into strips
3 cups rocket
3 cups baby spinach leaves
250g punnet cherry tomatoes
2 small zucchinis
2 tbs white sesame seeds, lightly toasted
2 tbs black sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Vinaigrette

4 tbs olive oil
4 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Directions

Salad

Cut the zucchini lengthwise, then chop into half-disks. Plunge into boiling water for 30 seconds then plunge into iced-water to prevent the zucchini from cooking any further. Drain and set aside.

Dressing

In a jar with a screw-top lid, add all of the vinaigrette ingredients. Tightly screw on the lid and shake vigorously until the dressing has combined.

To Serve

Divide the rocket and spinach leaves across 4 plates. Top with strips of salmon, cherry tomatoes and zucchini. Drizzle the red wine vinaigrette over the top and scatter with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
