A beautiful summer salad that is light and refreshing. The salmon in this recipe is delicious and is a perfect match with the mayo/yoghurt dressing. Easy to prepare and a favourite in our household. Enjoy!



Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 6 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
350g large shell pasta
400-500g fresh salmon (skin on)
1 medium red onion
250g cherry tomatoes
75g baby spinach leaves (or about half a bag)

For dressing:
1/2 cup plain or greek yoghurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise (can be low-fat)
2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp of fresh dill, chopped or about 1 Tbsp of dried dill

Method
Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water with a pinch of salt until tender. Drain and run cold water over it. Remove to salad bowl.
Dice red onion and chop cherry tomatoes in half. Add to pasta with spinach leaves.
In another bowl, combine dressing ingredients and season. Put in the fridge to cool while you prepare salmon.

Lightly oil and season both sides of the salmon. Heat fry-pan with a little oil over medium-high heat. Place the skin-side down on the pan first and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
Use a fork and flake salmon away from the skin. It should flake easily if itís cooked properly.

Toss salmon over the pasta mixture. Spoon dressing over salad and mix together to combine. Serve.
