Loaded Smoked Salmon Salad
We’re just gonna come out and say it: This salad is a delight. It’s the definition of a salad that’ll fill you up (thanks to creamy avocado and flaky salmon) without weighing you down (all those fresh greens, bright tomatoes and crunchy cucumbers). Tangy chèvre crumbles and sunflower seeds add layers of texture, and the dressing is a real treat — zingy and sweet in equal measure.
Our Loaded Smoked Salmon Salad is hearty enough for a keep-you-going-strong-all-afternoon-long lunch or standalone dinner, and while it’s especially fresh and tasty in summer, like all salads, it has a Goldilocks quality that other salads lack. It’s sturdy enough to be a standout in any season.
