Smoked Salmon and Avacado Tartare
Our Christmas celebration was wonderful, all our family got together.We had a lot of fun, singing Christmas Carols, taking walks in the countryside and enjoying this special time of the year.
The happiest of us all was our dog Buster, a beagle and like most of his breed over enthusiastic stuffing himself with food - especially the one he is forbidden to eat the rest of the year!
Now Christmas is over and we are back to reality worrying about curves that appear somehow more curvaceous than before.
It's probably the only time of the year I'm really looking forward to exercice!
For our New Years Party I was looking for something light, healthy and easy to prepare.
This Tartare is fresh and stylish and you can prepare it some hours in advance.
Ideal for a stress free New Years Eve party!
