Northwest Smoked Salmon Salad

northwest smoked salmon salad

This Northwest Smoked Salmon Salad is a delicious bounty of northwest flavors. It starts with local smoked salmon from Josephson’s Smokehouse in Astoria,

Then add some crisp Washington apples, big juicy blackberries, roasted hazelnuts, creamy Oregon blue cheese and avocado on a bed of field greens (spring mix).

Drizzle on some homemade vinaigrette and pair with some warm crusty bread from your local bakery and a nice Oregon Pinot Noir. Because what grows together goes together.

Don’t you just love summer and all of the wonderful local produce that’s available this time of year? It makes healthy eating much simpler. This salad is not only tasty but full of healthy nutrients that help sustain energy.

And did I mention that it is Keto friendly. With only 17 net carbs. Healthy just got easier and tastier! Not a fan of salmon? Swap it out for some Lemon Rosemary Grilled Chicken.

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
  • 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.

Have you ever been to an olive oil tasting. It’s worth trying, You get to taste the different nuances of different varieties. It’s like a wine tasting but with bread and buttery olive oil.
