Smoked Salmon and Arugula with Shaved Vidalia, Dill, and Lemon Honey Dressing
Updated: Jun 27, 2022
You can't get much more simple than this salad. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and is light, fresh, and healthy. Buy the freshest smoked salmon you can find, and this salad works great as a great first course for company dinners. But most often I will add cooked quinoa or a thick slice of multigrain bread and have it for a delicious health break to my work-from-home day or an after-workout light meal.
Ingredients (per serving):
1 oz. Smoked Salmon
2 cups arugula
1-2 very thin slices of Vidalia onion (use a mandolin in you have one)
1 tsp fresh dill
2 tbsp lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
Whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, and salt in a large bowl until thoroughly blended. Add arugula and Vidalia, reserving some onion for garnish. Top with salmon, garnish with remaining onion and sprinkle with dill.
I use about 1/8 tsp salt per serving, but it can vary depending on your salt type (I use David's, which isn't available everywhere). Start with a pinch per serving (about 1/8 tsp for two servings) and add to taste.
