You can cook the salmon in a pan if you prefer, there is enough oil in the salmon that will be released into the pan that you won’t need to use any extra. Watch out for juniper and pepper corns in the sauerkraut. These give flavour but aren’t so nice to bite down on. If you prefer, use spray oil instead of liquid.



  • ½ broccoli, florets and stalk diced 1-2cm
  • ½ bag green beans, sliced 2cm
  • 1 carrot, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • ½ bag baby spinach
  • 40g sassy sauerkraut


  • 250g salmon fillet


  • ½ pottle yoghurt
  • 1 pack herb vinaigrette
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 220˚C. Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil.
  2. Prep salad ingredients.
  3. Prep & cook salmon. Pat salmon dry and remove any pin bones. Place skin side down on a lined oven tray and season. Bake for 8-10 minutes for medium (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking.
  4. Prep & mix drizzle. In a large bowl, mix together yoghurt, vinaigrette, garlic and chives. Remove half for serving.
  5. Cook & dress salad. Cook broccoli, green beans and carrot in pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until tender with a bite. Drain well, then add to the large bowl with drizzle.
  6. Add spinach and sauerkraut to same bowl. Toss well to combine and season.
  7. Serve salad topped with large chunks of flaked salmon fillet and spoon over drizzle.
