Best Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe

By March 18, 2021Smoked Seafood

Smoked Salmon Salad is as Kiwi as BBQ’s, backyard cricket and beach holidays. Everyone has a take on their perfect Smoked Salmon Salad and this is one of ours.

It’s not hard to see why it is a New Zealand Favourite, not only is salmon delicious but it’s also packed full of healthy omega-3s and a number of other nutrients.  It’s also been associated with the brain development of infants and easing symptoms of inflammatory diseases.

So it’s a win-win:  Delicious and Good For You!

Smoked Salmon – The Main Attraction

There are so many ways to enjoy salmon.  Often, we will use if for canapes, or as an appetizer, and sometimes as Tapas to have with drinks.  Common, why not, those are all delightful!

But we think that it is also the perfect ingredient for a main meal. This simple but very rewarding recipe is all about smoked salmon being the hero!

This recipe is so easy it’s ready in minutes.  Normally a throw together that’s ready that quick isn’t the most appealing on the plate, but not with this recipe, it looks beautiful and it tastes delicious.

We hope you enjoy it.
