party leftovers

Here's an elegant and easy way to serve leftover smoked salmon (when you're tired of having bagels and lox).

Smoked Salmon Salad

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup drained capers

1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Grape tomatoes, cut in half
6 ounces smoked salmon, torn or cut into bite-size pieces

Parsley leaves

Mix lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, oil and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Add capers and onion; toss to coat. When ready to serve, pour some dressing over salmon, tomatoes, and parsley leaves; toss to coat.

* Start with a little dressing and add more to taste.

That looks so yummy and classy in that martini glass! You should've posted BEFORE I attempted to make salmon and green onion wraps in homemade whole-wheat crepes. The crepes failed but I managed to fix the last two.

This is a really pretty presentation. I like how the flavors are classic with lox (tomatoes, onions, etc.). It would be great for a dinner party!
