Smoked Salmon Salad

Last week I had the most amazing salad at a local restaurant. It was just that good and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

I decided to re-create it with the exception of one ingredient, dried sweet corn. I looked around to see if I could find some nearby but I was out of luck. { I did find some on Amazon }

The flavors compliment each other in ways I would have never imagined. I mean who would have thought to put dried cranberries and smoked salmon together? But it works so well.

Ingredients

Smoked salmon, sliced

Israeli couscous [I used whole wheat]

Dried cranberries

Pepitas

Roasted red peppers, chopped

Butter lettuce or green leaf lettuce, chopped

Combine all ingredients, as much or as little as you please.

For the dressing, I used a Jalapeno ranch then added a little chopped Italian parsley and lemon juice. Combine until smooth and drizzle over your salad, a little goes a long way.

Enjoy!
