    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 the boil. Add green beans, cover and steam until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and let cool.
    3. Preheat barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Brush salmon with vegetable oil; season with salt and pepper.
    4. Cook salmon on the preheated barbecue 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 bowl. Place salmon on top. Garnish with bacon and spring onions. Serve dressing alongside.

    I made it exactly as written and it is fabulous! I layered the ingredients in 4 mason jars to take for lunch. The salad stayed fresh and all my coworkers ooh’d and ahh’d at how great it looked in the refrigerator!  -  19 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Was pretty good, will make it again, but will leave out the green beans and use less dill and more garlic in the dressing.  -  07 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
