Smoked Salmon and Fennel Salad

Smoked Salmon and Fennel Salad

I made a refreshing smoked salmon and fennel salad, tossed with lemon and olive oil.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Smoked salmon
5-6 slices
Fennel (bulb)
Lemon peel (finely chopped)
1/2 lemon's worth
Lemon juice
1 lemon's worth
Olive oil
1.5 times the amount of lemon juice
Salt and pepper
to taste
Avocado (optional)


1. Cut off the hard part above the fennel bulb and slice the white part into a thickness of 2-3 mm (put the green leaves aside for decoration).
2. Use a peeler to remove the lemon peel and finely chop. Slice the smoked salmon into bite-sized pieces (quarters).
3. Mix the lemon juice and olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and add the chopped lemon peel to make the dressing.
4. Add the fennel from Step 1 to the dressing, and add the smoked salmon. If you are using avocado, slice it into bite-sized pieces and add it here.
5. Top with the green fennel leaves you set aside for a nice finishing touch.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was looking for a way to use up some leftover smoked salmon. I found a recipe by Martha Stewart and changed it a little to make my own version.
