Turkish pide bread is a type of flat bread similar to Italian focaccia. Here, it's filled with smoked salmon slices, creamy avocado, crispy vegetables and a tangy dressing.

2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
½ clove garlic—minced (crushed)
A pinch each of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 handful roughly torn romaine (Cos) lettuce
1 tomato—thinly sliced
½ avocado—peeled and thinly sliced
½ Turkish pide bread (or use focaccia bread as a substitute)
3½ oz (100g) sliced smoked salmon
6 thin slices of red onion


MIX together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. ARRANGE the lettuce, tomato and avocado over the base of the Turkish bread. TOP with the smoked salmon and red onion and drizzle with the dressing. SANDWICH together with the Turkish bread top and cut in halves or quarters to serve.

Tip: This recipe tastes best if the pide bread is warmed in the oven for a couple of minutes before constructing the sandwich.
