Recipe: Couscous Tuna Salad

Cous Cous Tuna Salad Fish Recipe 7


It’s getting hotter, finally! With this weather, some delicious salads with fish would do more then fine. Sitting at your balcony sipping on a glass of wine or a fresh home made Ice Tea, sounds good right.. This recipe is easy and quick, so you can relax more and enjoy the sunny days. You can also make variations by adding pangafilet instead of tuna steaks. My dear friend Zinaida came up with this recipe, she keeps coming up with salads/healthy food that her daughter of 4 who doesn’t like vegetables actually gratefully eats!

Recipe: Salad with Parma Ham, Goat Cheese and Dates

Salad Parma Ham Goat Chees Dates Spinach

This delicious salad is ready between 5 and 10 minutes! Just mix the ingredients described below, a child can do the laundry (Dutch saying means: It’s too damn easy!). This great recipe comes from Zinaida, a good friend of mine. She even got her little daughter of 4 enjoying vegatables by serving this salad. The slightly salty flavour of Parma ham and sweet dates gives the perfect flavor.  Suggestion: If you don’t eat  or like pork, switch the Parma ham with beef carpaccio to keep the mixture of salt and sweet.


  • For the salad
  • Parma Ham ( 5 slices)
  • Leaf lettuce with baby spinach (80 gram)
  • Goat Cheese with honey (125 gram)
  • Sliced black olives
  • 5 Medjool dates
  • Spring onions
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • For the vinaigrette
  • Caesar Salad dressing


Garnish a big bowl with the lettuce and spinach, sliced cherry tomatoes, Parma ham and black olives. Deseed the dates and chop them into half. Slice the goat cheese in small pieces. Roast the pine nuts and  arrange everything in the bowl. Pour over the dressing and serve. Enjoy!
