A healthy recipe for salmon salad with blue cheese gives you smoky and salty flavours, which are then combined with sweet cantaloupe melon and earthy roasted pine kernels for crunch. I added sun-dried tomatoes and cucumber for freshness and surprise, and to that a dressing of Dijon mustard, honey, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. A great combination that you can vary according to your taste, and what is in season. Enjoy this recipe as an eat clean inspiration, and healthy addition to your ‘new you’ recipe collection.

For The Salad
  1. 150 gram smoked Salmon
  2. 50 gram Blue Cheese
  3. 300 gram cantaloupe Melon (rind removed)
  4. 1/2 Cucumber
  5. 30 gram grated Carrots
  6. 1 Celery stick
  7. 5 sun-dried Tomatoes
  8. 30 gram roasted Pine Kernels
  9. 200 gram baby Spinach or Water Cress Salad (go for small salad green leaves 🙂 )
For The Dressing
  1. 1 Tablespoon Mustard - I used Dijon
  2. 1/2 Tablespoon Honey
  3. 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  4. 2 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  5. Salt and Peppar to taste
Chop, Mix and Dress Like This
  1. Chop all your vegetables into bite size pieces.
  2. Roast your pine kernels and be careful not to burn them. Do not add oil to the pan or oven tray as they are naturally oily, but do add a bit of salt, pepper or Za'atar if you have that at home.
  3. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes up into smaller bits so they distribute themselves nicely later.
  4. Chop up the blue cheese into nice even chunks.
  5. Cut the salmon (I use kitchen scissors for this) into nice long strips.
  6. Mix the vegetables with the sun-dried tomatoes and set aside.
  7. Lay out the green salad or spinach leaves on a big serving platter, add the vegetable mix and then the salmon, blue cheese and top with the pine kernels.
  8. Pour on dressing when you are just about to serve.
  9. Enjoy!
