Tuscan salmon & olive salad open sandwich


  • Combine the olives and parsley with one-third of the red onion, the capsicum, spring onions, garlic, 2-3 tbsp olive oil, a good squeeze of lemon juice, the red wine vinegar and seasonings. Set aside to develop the flavours.
  • Cook the salmon until almost ready on an oiled, preheated ridged grill. Then flake into a large bowl and gently toss with the basil, remaining red onion, celery, mayonnaise, 1 tbsp lemon juice, a little salt and some ground pepper.
  • Grill or toast the bread brushed with oil and dress the watercress with a little oil and ground pepper.
  • Then neatly mound the olive salad on each piece of toast and top with the salmon mixture, a little more olive salad and a garnish of watercress.
  • nb.  Canned salmon or tuna work well too.
