Mixed Vegetable and Sardine Salad

Mixed Vegetable and Sardine Salad

A mixed vegetable salad, with tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and sardines with a creamy dressing.

Sardines are an excellent source of omega-3 oils and calcium, and for this reason they should be integrated into our regular diet. Added to a such tasty salad as this is a simple way of serving them.

3 potatoes, cut in half   600 g
2 carrots, cut into chunks   200 g
2 zucchini, whole   260 g
2 cups green/snap beans, trimmed   200 g
2 tomatoes, diced   240 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
1/3 cup mayonnaise   85 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
2 eggs size large    
10 sardines, tinned   200 g
16 black olives   6 tbsp


  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; trim the ends of the green beans. Place them in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam for about 15 min.
  2. Let them 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 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 slice them. Garnish the vegetables with the egg slices.
  5. Drain the sardines, then place them on top of the vegetables. Add the olives and serve.
