Mixed Leaves with Tarragon Vinaigrette

Use a combination of any soft leafed salad greens or herbs such as: baby spinach, mustard leaves, watercress, rocket, red oak leaf, chervil and endive. Also include a sharp flavoured leaf such as radicchio to help cut the richness of the salmon.


11⁄2 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon tarragon mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground pepper


Whisk the vinegar, sugar, mustard and garlic in a bowl until the sugar dissolves.
Add the oil and whisk again. Season and taste. Toss gently through the salad greens just before serving.
