Salmon Salad

I just want you all to know that I took the salmon out of the freezer at 8:00 a.m. this morning before I went shopping and when I returned was completely intimidated by Roger’s pretty little tart  http://stowell.wordpress.com/2011/11/30/ill-follow-the-sun-with-a-smoked-salmon-tart-in-tow/.  Oh well, this was good too :)

Salmon Salad

Smoked salmon

quail eggs, hard boiled and halved

Salmon eggs

Iceberg lettuce

Mache

Capers

Dill

Creme fraiche

Toast

Place the mache and lettuce on a salad plate, draping the salmon on top.  Arrange the quail eggs around the lettuce and top with the salmon eggs.  Sprinkle with capers and dill, top with a dollop of creme fraiche and serve with toast.

Wine suggestion:  Champagne Jacquart Brut

    Great job on the pictures.

  2. This blows that crummy tart out of the water. (I know, that wasn’t convincing at all, the tart was great, I can’t get it out of my head, but this is too!) Those quail eggs look wonderful.

  3. This salad not only looks really cute, with that mix of colours and textures, I’m sure it’s also delicious!
    I’ll take the recipe with me, I must try it!!

  4. Well you certainly got it right today. Looks fantastic – nicely seen.
