As a surfer and windsurfer in the 90's, our holiday destinations for more than 15 years were the glorious surf beaches between Bordeaux and Biarritz, the best surfing in Europe. This Basque area of SouthWestern France is the origin of Salade Landaise. Fresh produce is abundant and easy to obtain, every town has weekly, even daily markets selling fresh produce from local farms. The many versions of Salade Landaise we had were never the same, but always a fabulous selection of the best produce available at that time in the season.

In my attempt to reproduce this recipe, I've picked a selection of what was available in our local supermarket, and what we had growing at home. It's probably not authentic, but not unlike many we've had over the years.

I've listed some of the key ingredients you're likely to find in an authentic Salade Landaise, but never all at the same time!
