These delicious ingredients make the perfect summer salad.

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus woody ends removed

  • 1 butter lettuce outer leaves removed

  • 1 cup watercress

    If the salmon fillets still have the skin on, use a sharp knife to carefully remove it, then rub each piece with half the olive oil before coating in the herbs.

    Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a high heat.

    Add the salmon and sear for 1 minute each side (this will be rare), then set aside.

  • 5.

    Meanwhile, tear the lettuce leaves and place on a serving dish with the watercress.

  • 6.

    Slice the asparagus and add to the lettuce and watercress.

  • 7.

    Break the salmon fillets into rough chunks and add to the salad.
