No-fuss easy salad recipe. Surprisingly low-calorie, grain-free, high-protein and so delicious.

150 calories per serve


1 ripe avocado, sliced lengthways
½ iceberg lettuce, cored and quartered
1 handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed and washed
1 handful of dill, finely chopped
1 handful of salted capers
6 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
Lemon juice of one lemon
Extra olive oil
Sea salt and Pepper


Heat a griddle or fry pan over medium heat with a small amount of olive oil. Saute the asparagus for 2 to 3 minutes on each side and set aside to cool. Arrange the iceberg lettuce pieces on a serving plate. Scatter tomatoes, asparagus spears and avocado slices.
Add the dill, capers, half the lemon juice and anchovies to the mayonnaise, mix well, and drizzle sparingly (you wont need much as its very rich!) over the salad – aiming for the lettuce chunks. Season with freshly ground sea salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil and lemon juice if desired.

This is divine on its own or especially delicious as a side with fish.
