I buy lox (smoked salmon) in the local grocery store and my husband picks it up at Costco. We usually are organized and only one of us brings it home. Perfection is not always in play and one week, we both brought home rather large packages. Being a lox lover, I was thrilled and started on a search for recipes other than bagels and lox, scrambled eggs with lox or stuffed wontons with lox. I found some with noodles and others with potatoes and there were a big variety of salads.
I found recipes on several sites and there is one particular site that particularly held my interest and where I got this recipe, Just Smoked Salmon. Knowing me, you know I adjusted some of the ingredients but all in all, I kept to their recipe. They used canned Sockeye Smoked Salmon and I used fresh smoked salmon.
Summer Salmon potato salad
1 large slice smoked salmon
3 large potatoes, boiled and cut into chunks
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1 cucumber, cut into bite sized chunks
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon coarse grained mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh dill chopped
Combine salmon, potatoes, tomatoes and cucumber in a bowl.
Sprinkle with pepper.
Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. I used a small Rubbermaid container and shook it with the lid on, of course.
Toss with salad ingredients.
The lox makes all the difference in the potato salad. It brings the salty flavor to pop throughout the salad. The
cukes felt just right, in this salad, although, I have never used cucumbers in potato salad, before.
