Summer is all about salads in our house. Things that can be made ahead and picked out of the refrigerator when the day cools down and the appetite awakens. During a trip to Stavanger I ran across Déjà Vu Delikatesser where I had a lovely salad which I have tried to recreate here.
SaladField salad – I used red leafed for a little color Fresh mango – chunked Fresh cantalope – chunked Smoked salmon – in pieces Sweet peas in a pod – chopped Sprouts – preferably crunchy type Shallots – finely minced Cayenne and Chipotle pepper flakes Fresh ground pepper Sea salt
Toss above ingredients in a large bowl
DressingBalsamic vinegar Squish of lime juice Salad Olive Oil Dijon mustard
We didn’t have wasabi paste to mix in the dressing but we did have wasabi potato chips which are very spicy. I crushed some over the salad. I would also consider Wasabi dried peas or Wasabi covered peanuts as a nice spicy / crunchy addition.
Hubby isn’t a fan of salads or salmon (the dislike of salmon is due to an overdose from several years of commuting on Scandinavian Airlines in the early 2000’s) but this salad he gave a 8 on a 10 point scale.
