Smoked Salmon Summer Salad with Lemon Dill Dressing


I try to introduce new healthy meals to my family in the hope that they will make them again. After three days of eating out, I decided that a salad was a good bet, and I adapted this Salmon Vegetable Salad with Miso Dressing recipe to suit my family’s preferences and make it more accessible (I have never heard of  some of the ingredients!).

I am not a big fan of using tinned foods when fresh is available so I decided to use smoked salmon instead. My family loves smoked salmon, and it went well with the lemon dill dressing to make a wonderful summer salad.

First, I chopped up all the salad ingredients and the salmon into bit size chunks. I added red cabbage for crunch and color.

Look at those pretty colors!

I threw all of those healthy goodies into a large bowl with some lovely ripe cherry tomatoes, stirred in the lemon dill dressing until it was evenly coated, and there you have it! Simple, healthy, fast!
