Smoked Salmon and Spinach Salad

Fish in salad sounds odd because were not used to it as most of the meats commonly used for your leafy greens are beef, chicken and occasionally prawns or squid but fish? Well most of us don’t even think of it. If we think of the common fish yes it’s quite weird but with smoked salmon then it changes your perception.

Cold Smoked salmon is quite a versatile ingredient, you can enjoy it on bagels, in sushi, in appetizers, pasta, omelettes and tacos to name some, having said that why not in salad.
