Blooming Smoked Trout Salad

20 Jul

We eat a lot of salads during the summer. I try to come up with different variations to keep us from getting bored with the same old thing. This salad is delicious and fun. I made it with smoked trout but it could be done with smoked salmon, crab meat or even can tuna.

  • smoked trout filet deboned and flaked
  • 2 heads of Bibb lettuce separated into leaves

For the dressing

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil
  • 2 plum tomatoes seeded and finely chopped
  • fresh ground pepper (the fish is salty so no need to add salt)

Mix the dressing ingredients together; let stand for 30 minutes. Stack the lettuce leaves on two plates to form a flower shape. Place the fish in the center of the “flower”. Drizzle with the dressing, spreading the tomatoes all over. Happy summer eating.
