Thanks to my recent new adventures in hot smoking salmon, I am trying to get inspired with new recipes. Of course, I really enjoy smoked salmon on it’s own as a snack, or crumbled on a rye cracker with a light cream cheese.
I created this salad for lunch the other day and used some of the fresh smoked salmon that came right off the smoker….hmmmmm… as I type this, everything around me smells of smoked hickory goodness. This salad is great because not only will you be getting loads of iron, but it’s also a great source of lean protein, healthy fats and veggies.
Aren’t those some pretty colors?
In my salad went……..
- 2 cups of baby organic spinach
- 1/2 apple
- 6 baby carrots
- 1 celeri stick
- 1/2 cup corn
- as much or as little smoked salmon
- fresh dill
- dressing: 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vineger + 2 tsp maple syrup
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and chow down!
I was planning on eating outside when I took this picture. As you can see, the sun is shining, but the wind is also blowing. Living by the water makes things a little chilly at times.
Hope everyone’s day is going well.
What is your favourite way of eating smoked salmon? Anybody have any inspiration to send my way?
I am going to be freezing a lot of the salmon, but I also want to eat some of it fresh while I can.
Back soon. Take care.
