Crayfish Salad | The Yummy Truth

I feel like I keep going on about the Summer but everything just seems to be better when the sun is shining – people are more friendly, more sociable; the days are longer and I find it much easier to dress for the heat. Salads are great for these high temperatures that bring with them new levels of humidity and absolutely no sea breeze; this crayfish salad is light and also has the added benefit of allowing you to attain or maintain that summer body.

I created this crayfish recipe on a whim. I woke up one morning and saw that a friend had pinned a beautiful picture of a salad on Pinterest and I was immediately inspired to make a salad that looked similar for my lunch that day using whatever I had in the fridge at the time. I clearly got carried away when my crayfish salad took shape because it was so gorgeous and I couldn’t stop taking pictures, to the point where I was a little late for work but it was SO worth it.

Food that is stunning to look at is so much more fun to eat. All day I was waiting for lunchtime to arrive so that I could make everyone at the office jealous of my salad. The only regret I had was that I didn’t make more. This recipe is incredibly easy, all you have to do is chop and toss then enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 135g lettuce (in a bag), approx. 2 large handfuls
  2. 30g walnuts (approx. 6), finely chopped
  3. 100g cooked and peeled crayfish tails
  4. 6 baby plum tomatoes
  5. 1 spring onion, chopped
  6. 1/2 inch of ginger, finely chopped
  7. 2 slices of bacon
  8. 1 mild chilli pepper (such as anaheim), sliced
  9. 1 handful of parsley, chopped
  10. 1 handful of coriander/cilantro, chopped
  11. 1 lime
  12. 2 tbsps chilli oil
Instructions
  1. In a frying pan, over medium heat, add a drop of oil and then cook the bacon for 2 minutes on each side and then remove from the heat.
  2. Slice or chop all the ingredients, to include the bacon but not the crayfish, and put in a bowl
  3. Squeeze a lime over the salad and then drizzle 1.5 tbsps of chilli oil.
  4. Toss and serve immediately.
Notes
  1. I didn't have avocado but if I did I would have had it.
  2. If you are preparing this salad for later, do not dress it until you are ready to eat it as the oil will make the lettuce wilt.
