3 potatoes, cut in half   600 g
2 carrots, cut into chunks   200 g
2 zucchini, whole   260 g
2 tomatoes, diced   240 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
3 tbsp yogurt, plain, 2%   45 g
3 tbsp mayonnaise   45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
2 eggs size large    
10 sardines, tinned   200 g


  1. Prepare the vegetables: peel the potatoes and cut them in half; peel the carrots and cut them into large chunks; leave the zucchini whole. Place them in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam for about 15 min.
  2. Let the vegetables cool down 10 min or longer, so they won't be so hot to handle. Coarsely dice the vegetables into bite-size pieces and put them in a bowl. Dice the tomatoes and add them to the bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, yogurt and mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper, then pour the mixture over the vegetables. Toss well, then transfer the vegetables to a serving plate.
  4. While the vegetables are cooking, boil the eggs, during about 10 min, cool them down immediately in cold water, then dice them. Add to the serving plate.
  5. Drain the sardines, then place them on top of the vegetables and serve.
