The Salads of Casa de Cuisine: Indonesian Smoked Salmon Salad

See also

So, what is a salad? As opposed to what many believe, it is not a mound of greens slathered in an industrial gunk called a "dressing." It is not a plate of raw vegetables. It is not an umimaginative conglomeration of produce meant for only dieters. A salad is a perfect marriage of taste and texture which when properly created and structured, can be the highlight of any dining experience. All through the month of February, Chef Larry Edwards will be feauting the Salads of Casa de Cuisine and you will see salads like you've never seen them before.

For this salad we are going to go to a wondrous part of the world known as Indonesia and as one might expect, enjoy a salad of tropical spendor. What we have here is a simple salad of spinach, crunchy beansprouts and the elegant taste of smoked salmon. It will all be put together with a fresh tasting dressing consisting of nothing more than some lime juice and a pinch of salt - both ingredients bringing out the fresh taste of the ingredients making up this salad.

Ingredients needed to make Indonesian Smoked Salmon Salad (serves 2):

  • 8 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts, rinsed
  • 1 cup shredded spinach
  • ¼ cup grated coconut
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tsp. lime juice
  • ½ tsp. salt

Steps:

  1. In a medium bowl toss together the smoked salmon, bean sprouts and spinach.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss and serve.
