If you're looking for a tasty salad with great contrast of textures but a fantastic flavor combination – try this! The slight oiliness of the salmon works perfectly with the pepperiness of the arugula (also known as rocket!), and the creaminess of the avocado. The lemon dressing brings everything together!

Serve this salad as a filling lunch for two people, or as an appetizer for four people. I shared it with my husband for lunch recently on a really hot day – and it was ideal!

A great aspect of this salad is that it comes together pretty quickly – especially if you use a pre-cooked smoked salmon fillet like I did. You can prepare the dressing in advance if necessary, plus cook and cool the salmon if you can only buy raw. Then assemble the salad just before planning to eat, to make sure that the avocado is perfect!

How to Make Salmon, Avocado and Arugula Salad with Lemon Dressing

To make the dressing, combine extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and black pepper in a jug or bowl. Whisk it vigorously together until it is emulsified.

To make the salad, add arugula leaves, flaked cooked salmon, and a diced avocado (you want it ripe, but not TOO soft for this salad otherwise it will get too mushy). Gently toss everything together, then drizzle a little of the lemon dressing over the top, leaving extra for guests to add as necessary.
