Now make the salad

Cook the potatoes in salted water until you can insert a knife into the potato with ease. Drain and cool completely. In a glass bowl, combine the pesto, olive oil and NOMU seasoning. Cut the potatoes in half ( keep the skins on) and add to the pesto/olive oil mix. Gently mix the potatoes, so each potato half is coated with the pesto mix.

Place the potatoes on a big platter. Break the salmon in bite-size chunks and add to the salad. Add the steamed beans. Mix all the salsa ingredients and spoon over the salad. Add fresh basil and seasoning if needed.
Serve with a fresh wholewheat bread and hollandaise.
