2 cups Alaskan smoked salmon, very thinly sliced
1 bunch mixed salad green
1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
5 Tbl capers, finely chopped
2/3 cup olive oil
1 lemon, juice of
salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Lightly blend all the ingredients for the dressing and season with salt and pepper.
Pile up a small portion of the mixed salad leaves in the center of the plate.
Then arrange the slices of cucumber followed by sliced salmon as desired on top of the bed of lettuce.
Drizzle the dressing over. My Mom swore that she didn’t like smoked salmon. Oh, please. She loved it. She said savoring this salad was the second best thing about the day. The first was watching me wear my Nana’s gown while I became Mrs. Killian Nelson. One more layer of deliciousness on an already perfect day.
