This week I was inspired by the salad posted by Back Road Journal – Smoked Trout with a Spinach, Orange, and Red Onion Salad. I reworked it a bit to suit my tastes and came up with a gorgeous salad that I am now addicted to.
The combination of flavors are stunning. I love that I now have a light, go-to recipe for the holiday season. It is lovely served with a little crusty bread and a nice wine. Maybe now I won’t gain too many pounds. 🙂 Even if you don’t like the idea of the salad, I strongly suggest trying the dressing. I will use it on several different salads, not just this one.
Asian Citrus Salmon Salad
- Salad greens of your choice (I used arugula)
- Smoked salmon
- Slices of red onion
- Feta cheese
- Fresh grapefruit with membrane removed (could be substituted for oranges)
Arrange on a plate and top with the dressing- recipe listed below.
Sweet Lime and Sesame Oil Dressing
- 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1 tsp. or more sesame seed oil
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 2 tsp. honey
- 1 garlic clove, grated
- 1/2 tsp. grated ginger
- pepper to taste
Combine the dressing ingredients and puree in a blender. Make about 3/4 cup.
