Spinach Salad with Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, and Tarragon Vinaigrette


Created and presented by Myra Kornfeld

Buttery nova lox (cold-smoked salmon) lends a colorful touch to a flavorful spinach and goat cheese salad, making this dish a substantial appetizer or delicious light lunch.

(Vital Choice note: Our wild Alaskan sockeye nova lox has about one-third less sodium than most national brands, making it both healthier and tastier.)

Serves 4

Dressing

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

2 tablespoons minced chives or scallions

2 tablespoons chopped tarragon

4 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 clove garlic, minced

20 scrapes of fresh nutmeg (1/4 teaspoon powdered)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or organic balsamic vinegar

6 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil

Salad

12 ounces baby spinach

1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

4 ounces wild Alaskan sockeye salmon nova lox, thinly sliced

  • Make the dressing. Mix together the red onions, chives, tarragon, parsley, garlic, nutmeg, a sprinkling salt and pepper, and the vinegar. Drizzle in the oil, whisking to combine thoroughly.
  • Mix the spinach with the goat cheese and the dressing and toss to combine. Top with the sliced salmon.
