Arugula Smoked Salmon Salad

Spicy arugula,  salty smoked salmon, crunchy cucumbers, capers and sun dried tomatoes combine in this summer salad.

By now, you most likely know I’m a huge fan of salads! Salad is my typical lunch every day, so I constantly look for ways to experiment with new salad recipes. This arugula smoked salmon salad is inspired by a salad I often order at a local sports bar. Of course I has to change it by leaving the fresh tomatoes out and adding some flavorful sun dried tomatoes and I also added cucumbers. The dressing was a little too creamy for me, so I had to todd my salad in a mix of lime juice, olive oil, salt and a little pepper. Topped with some toasted sesame seeds for nutty hint of flavor.

Do you like smoked salmon? I usually eat it with a bagel or make a sandwich with it. I know some people absolutely do not like it. If you are one of them, feel free to substitute with cooked salmon instead. Make sure that you add capers, because they complement the salmon very well!
