Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe
Posted on 20th of January, 2011 by Lévana
In this delightful smoked salmon salad, I did nothing more than a little flavor matchmaking and made it a main course salad: Smoked salmon, lemon zest, chick peas, artichoke hearts, avocado? Marriages made in salad heaven! Move over Bagels and lox!
You will find this smoked salmon salad quite elastic, and substitute whatever interesting salad greens you will find on shopping day for the ones I have selected, all good and colorful: tomatoes, fresh corn, beans etc….
2 heads Boston or other good quality salad greens, torn into bite-size pieces
8 ounces good quality smoked salmon, cut in strips
2 cups canned chick peas
1 10-ounce box frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
3 roasted red peppers, bottled OK, sliced thin
2 avocados, diced
1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
Arrange all salad ingredients nicely in a salad platter, and pour the dressing over.
½ cup olive oil
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
3 tablespoons prepared white horseradish (or 2 tablespoons wasabi mixed with a little water)
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a bowl until well mixed and emulsified.
