This is a very mildly flavored salad as I like to let the natural oils and flavours of the fish and avocado feature. The parsley and celery give a lovely freshness, while the sweet potato balances with sweetness.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1/2 cup Organic brown rice
  • 1/2 cup Red Quinoa
  • 1 meduim Sweet potato diced
  • 1/4 pumpkin
  • 1 Red onion
  • 1/2 bunch Parsley
  • 2 sticks Celery
  • 1 tbl spoon Wholegrain mustard
  • 1 Fillet hot smoked salmon
  • 1 Avocado


  1. Prepare rice and Quinoa as directed, rinse under cold water and set aside once cooked
  2. Dice sweet potato, pumpkin and red onion into roughly 1.5cm cubes, season with salt, pepper, paprika and nutmeg and lightly spray with olive oil. Bake in a moderate oven until cooked, adding onion pieces after 10 minutes
  3. Finely slice parsley and celery and mix through rice and quinoa with the wholegrain mustard, shred salmon and mix in gently.
  4. Once your vegetables are baked mix them through the salad and finally add diced avocado


My kids love this salad, I usually serve it with homemade Cajun wedges and it also makes an interesting and popular lunch box salad. We have a little smoker and do our own fish and meats but most supermarkets have smoked salmon! a little goes a long way too!
