Recipe for Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Arugula Salad

Smoked Salmon, Avocado & Arugula Salad

Adapted from: Fuss Free Cooking

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: N/A

Total time: 10 minutes

Serves: 1-2


For Salad:

2 oz. arugula

1 avocado, diced

½ large cucumber, diced

3 oz. smoked salmon

1 tbsp. sesame seeds

For Dressing:

1 lime, juiced

2 tbsp. EVOO

salt and pepper to taste


1. In a small dry pan, toast 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds over medium flame until lightly brown. Set aside.

2. Wash and dry the arugula. Set aside.

3. Slice cucumber. Set aside.

4. Half a lime and squeeze the juice into a small bowl.

5. Then add olive oil, salt to taste, and a 1/2 tablespoon of the toasted sesame seeds. Whisk until it emulsifies.

6. In a salad bowl, add arugula, cucumber, and hand torn smoked salmon.

7. Use an avocado slicer to slice the avocado. To avoid the avocado from turning brown, I dip slices of the avocado in the dressing and add into the salad bowl. Scatter the remaining toasted sesame seeds as a finishing touch.

8. Serve with the dressing as desired and enjoy!
