Serves: 2

  • 100g vacuum-packed cooked beetroot
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 95g low-fat high-protein natural yoghurt
  • 2 x 100g salmon fillets
  • 140g canned cannellini beans, drained, rinsed

  • 1 medium carrot (120g), sliced thinly lengthways
  • 1 small zucchini (90g), shaved lengthways

  1. To make beetroot dressing, process beetroot with the lemon juice and yoghurt until smooth. Season to taste.
  2. Place salmon, beans, lemon rind and 2 tbsp chopped fennel fronds in a large bowl; toss to coat. Season to taste.
