Festive Coriander Salmon Salad

I know that people do still seem to be a bit obsessed with pumpkins but Halloween and Thanksgiving have now passed for my U.S. friends and yesterday I noticed that the City of Yarra low key Christmas decorations had been put up in Queens Parade. Yesterday we were also having family discussions about Christmas celebrations.  So when I was thinking of making a salad for lunch today, Christmas was there in my consciousness.  This salad is a variant of one I often make and one which I like to take to Christmas events. Today I made Festive Coriander Salmon Salad.



210 gr canned pink salmon (in water)
6-8 mini Roma tomatoes
2 Lebanese cucumbers
1/2 bunch of coriander (cilantro)
1 clove of garlic crushed
1 tsp crushed ginger
1/2 tsp Sambal oelek
1/2 red pepper
Olive oil


Slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise
Slice the cucumbers lengthways and chop into rough half circles
Roughly chop the coriander
Slice the red pepper into fine strips
Place salmon (including liquid), tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper and coriander in a bowl
Add garlic, ginger and Sambal oelek
Dribble some olive oil over
Toss salad to mix ingredients

This should serve two people for lunch. If you are sharing the meal with someone who thinks that bread is the staff of life, some multigrain bread with lashings of butter would go with it nicely.
