This Northwest Smoked Salmon Salad is a delicious bounty of Pacific NW flavors. There’s really nothing better than using fresh local ingredients that are in season.

I started by using fresh local smoked salmon from Josephson’s Smokehouse. Added crisp Washington apples, juicy blackberries, roasted hazelnuts, creamy Oregon blue cheese and avocado. Placed it all on a bed of field greens (spring mix) and drizzled on some homemade vinaigrette.

Pair this yummy salad with warm crusty bread from your local bakery and a nice Oregon Pinot Noir. Because, what grows together goes together.

This salad is not only tasty, it’s also full of healthy nutrients, resulting in more sustained energy. It’s also Keto friendly. Containing only 17 net carbs, healthy eating just got easier and tastier!

If you are not a fan of salmon simply swap it out for some Lemon Rosemary Grilled Chicken or rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store deli.

How to make Northwest Smoked Salmon Salad:

  • This recipe is designed to make four entree sized salads
  • Place equal amounts of spring mix into four salad bowls
  • Decoratively disperse equal amounts of the remaining ingredients into each of the four bowls
  • Drizzle with the homemade vinaigrette and enjoy!

Tips for making smoked salmon salad:

  • Be sure to use good quality ingredients for maximum flavor
  • Wild NW or Alaskan smoked salmon are much healthier than farm raised and sustainable
  • Use haas avocados. They are creamier and more flavorful than other varieties
  • For the dressing, use a good quality extra virgin olive oil. It’s fruitier and more flavorful.
  • Try an olive oil tasting. You get to taste the different nuances of different varieties. It’s like a wine tasting but with bread and buttery olive oil. It’s definitely worth checking out.

    This salad is so pretty! I’m assuming that’s not lox, but hot-smoked salmon? I bet that’s is so good with those other ingredients.
