Fresh Smoked Salmon Avocado Salad
- 8 ounces FAIRHAVEN BAY SEAFOODS smoked salmon
- One bag mixed salad leaves
- 1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
- cherry tomatoes, halved
- curled carrot strips
- 2-4 black olives
- sprouts to taste
- 4 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoons freshly-chopped chives
- garnish with lime wedges
Share the salad leaves between four serving plates and top with the avocado, tomato, olives, sprouts, and carrots strips. Arrange the smoked salmon on top.
To make the dressing, whisk together the avocado oil or olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and chives. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over the salads. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve at once.
Cook’s Tip: Smoked Wild Alaska Salmon has an exceptional flavor. Try it alone with buttered brown bread, black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Also, this salad is wonderful substituting radicchio with one fennel bulb, sliced thin.
