Are you interested in making a smoked salmon salad? They’re incredibly healthy and delicious! Especially with spinach as the salad base.

It costs a little extra, but you can buy relatively fresh, ready-to-eat smoked salmon in stores. You may also choose to smoke salmon yourself if you have the tools and time! I may have to try out smoking salmon on my own someday.

This particular recipe calls for ready-to-eat smoked salmon to keep things easy and quick.

Smoked Salmon Salad Ingredients (for One)

  1. Olive oil
  2. Fresh lemon juice
  3. Up to 1 tsp dill
  4. Black pepper
  5. Kosher salt
  6. Baby spinach
  7. Sliced cucumber (Persian or English would add amazing flavor)
  8. 1 sliced radish
  9. Up to 2oz smoked salmon, cut into very thin slices
  10. 1 small bowl
  11. Salad plate

I already have most of those things on standby! I’d need salmon, radish, and cucumber, though. I meant to remind you, alter the leaves and ingredients as you wish, except for the smoked salmon and some type of salad green!

Combining the Ingredients into a Salad

For my exact salad, the steps are to:

  • Grab a mixing bowl.
  • Stir the oil, seasonings, and juice together to make a dressing.
  • Set the spinach on the salad plate.**
  • Set the smoked salmon on top of the spinach.**
  • Surround the salmon with the cucumber and radish slices.**
  • Dress the salad.**
  • (optional) sprinkle goat or feta cheese on top.

**these are mandatory, but optional in terms of method. Different alternatives for serving are:

  • Mixing the spinach and cucumber & radish slices with the dressing and adding salmon as a garnish.
  • Mixing the smoked salmon in with all of the above and serving as a wet salad.

It’s all up to you and your soon-to-be happy tastebuds! After having eaten half my salad, I’m likely to add a little more dressing. I flip flop between liking my leaves dry or soggy with dressing so I tend to start semi-dry.

Hope you enjoy your smoked salmon salad!
