Kippered Salmon & Potato Salad

russian salad

In this recipe, I used baked kippered salmon, which has been salted and cold smoked.

It is a delicacy, and I buy it once a year from Russ & Daughters in NYC.

It's great eaten with cream cheese on a bagel, or in this salad.

This is my own concoction. You can also use smoked trout if you can't find the salmon.
It's wonderful and easy.

Kippered Salmon & Potato Salad:

10 new potatoes (small red), boiled and quartered
watercress or frisee lettuce
4 hard boiled eggs, quartered
1/2 lb. of baked kippered salmon (or smoked trout), torn into pieces

Dressing:

1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
handful of chopped fresh dill
1 tbsp prepared horseradish (not the beet red horseradish)
black pepper

Arrange your salad components on a platter and drizzle the dressing over the entire dish, generously covering the potatoes.



This is a great winter salad lunch.

Enjoy!

That does look delicious. The dressing recipe sounds great too.

It's very pretty salad. I would never think about adding salmon to a salad.

Thanks,

Some clients of my husband gave him a small jar of home cured salmon, which I've been wanting to do something with. This would be perfect, and sounds like a lovely dressing too.
