What’s Cooking? Smoked Salmon Salad

Photo: Cindy Lesher
One of my family’s favorite salads is one we discovered while on a trip in Buenos Aires.  Though the title says “What’s Cooking?”, this recipe is “no cooking” necessary and makes a great dinner on a warm evening.   Also if you’re dieting or health conscious, it’s adaptable to suit your needs.  We’ve added, deleted, and tweaked it to suit our tastes.  And honestly, we never make it exactly the same each time.  I’m one for change and trying new things.  But typically, here’s what’s on our Smoked Salmon Salad:

Mixed Musilix or baby Salad Greens  (we buy the large container from Costco)
Smoked Salmon (sliced in bite size pieces and rolled like above)
Avocado (sliced in thin wedges and cut in half)
Feta Cheese
Red Onion (thinly sliced and cut in small bite size pieces)
Scallions(chopped and yes, we like onions!)
Capers( just sprinkle them on to suit your taste!)
Red Pepper(sliced thin and small pieces)
Radishes (not my favorite so I try and “forget them” but somehow I’m reminded now and then ;)
Black Olives(chopped and we don’t always use them)
Dill or Cilantro (chopped fresh and sprinkled on last)

Note:  I don’t toss this salad.  I put it on a large flat pasta dish.  Layer the above ingredients on top of the salad.  Serve with large tongs to easily transfer onto individual dishes.  Add the amount of dressing to taste.
For a salad dressing I like to make mine from scratch.  But any fruity vinaigrette is perfect with this salad.   And the other nice thing about this salad, it’s a meal in itself.  No other “cooking” is required, just a lot of chopping.
