Large salad bowl or platter of mixed leaves (I like rocket and baby spinach, but any kind will do)
1 large avocado, halved, peeled and cubed
200gram piece (approx) of smoked salmon (I use a whole fillet of hot smoked salmon from my local market, broken up into chunks but you can use the sliced version if you like)
5-6 cherry tomatoes halved
½ cup walnuts lightly toasted
1 red onion, halved and sliced thinly
2 tablespoons of capers, drained
1 medium sized lemon, zest, and juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil *
1 teaspoon of horseradish cream
Sea salt, a good pinch
Black pepper, to taste
*Note: As the amount of juice from a lemon varies, you should aim to have roughly the same amount or slightly more olive oil than the juice. Taste and adjust accordingly.
Replace the horseradish cream with fresh horseradish or dijon mustard.
Replace the walnuts with toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
Vegan or vegetarian
Replace the salmon with diced and grilled tempeh or grilled mushrooms.
Make it more substantial
Add boiled and diced potato or roasted sweet potato. A slice of rye or sprouted sourdough is also delicious.
