Smoked Salmon & Pear Salad

I’ve been waiting for the sun for quite some time now. It finally came out today. I am grateful for the sun because It gives inspiration & happiness in ways which nothing materialistic can give us.

It wasn’t warm out today, but the sun made me crave something light, summery & refreshing.

I decided that a Smoked Salmon & Pear salad would match with the weather nicely. I accompanied this salad with a Orange-Lemon dressing .

I can’t describe how satisfying this salad is. There are only a few ingredients & they all pair perfectly together. The pear is crisp & wonderful while the salmon is delicate and light. I added some finely sliced red onions to give a bit of sharpness to the end of each bite.


What You Will Need

70 g smoked salmon

1/4 cup red onions, thinly sliced 

1/2 cup spinach

1/4 cup crisp pears, thinly sliced (I used apple pears)

Orange- Lemon Dressing

Juice of 1 orange

Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sugar

On a plate, lay evenly the spinach, red onions, pears & smoked salmon. Next, in a bowl,combine all the dressing ingredients together and whisk until smooth. Drizzle on the dressing just before serving.


Rain is gloom & sunshine is happiness. Thanks for coming out today.

  1. This is a great recipe, I do something very similar but I use a natural yoghurt mixed with lemon and lime as a dressing. I just love smoked salmon and orchard fruits.
