Smoked Salmon & Watercress Salad With Red Onion-Caper Vinaigrette13 Reviews
“Start with a salad of smoked salmon and watercress. Try to buy the commercial bagged watercress that already has been cleaned to speed things along, or you may substitute other mixed salad greens. (I like to make sure there are some bitter ones, such as radicchio and arugula, along with milder greens, such as butter lettuce or baby spinach.) Also, because this is such a simple salad, all the ingredients should be top-quality. So spring for the best smoked salmon you can find.” - by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson

"The dressing turned out to be too sour for me, so I added 1 teaspoon of honey to the mixture. In addition, I added sliced of cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, and used Dole's Spring Mix instead of waterc..." See moreress. It was delicious."
"I'm rating this on the vinaigrette more so than the salad because the salad as written is quite simple. I made the dressing a day ahead of time to let the flavors meld. It is quite pungent with the ..." See morered onions, dijon mustard, capers, lemon juice, and rice wine vinegar. But those strong flavors complement the simple salad perfectly! In addition to the lettuce and smoked salmon, I threw in pinenuts, grape tomatoes cut in half, and one avocado cubed. The creamy avocado and fresh smoked salmon were fabulous together. This is truly a salad fit for a meal!"
