First Course – Smoked Salmon Salad

Why have a potted nasturtium in the kitchen?  Well, they are easy to take care and when it’s late and you’re hungry and you’re trying to eat healthy, simply pull a few leaves from the plant.  Layer the leaves on a saucer.  Slice a couple of tomatoes.  Pile the slices on the leaves.  Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Glass of white wine or water on the side.  Done. Prep time?  About a minute and thirty seconds or so. 😉
