  • ¾ cup buttermilk

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • ½ clove garlic, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 cups fresh green beans, trimmed

  • 1 pound salmon fillets

  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 4 cups chopped green leaf lettuce

  • 1 pound tomatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained

  • 2 cucumbers, halved and sliced

  • 5 hard-boiled eggs, halved

  • 4 slices cooked bacon, cut into thin strips

  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced


  1. Combine buttermilk, mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, and garlic in a jar. Seal and shake well. Stir in dill, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate dressing.

  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add green beans, cover, and steam until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and let cool.

  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Brush salmon with vegetable oil; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Cook salmon on the preheated grill until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

  5. Layer lettuce, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, green beans, and hard-boiled eggs in a large glass trifle bowl. Place salmon on top. Garnish with bacon and spring onions. Serve dressing alongside.

Cook's Note:

If you are using prepackaged lettuce, you will need 6 cups.
