Smoked Salmon and Potato Salad with Dill

Smoked salmon, potato and dill salad

On Tuesday I arrived back home from a short holiday to Budapest. We had such a wonderful time enjoying delicious Hungarian food, the charming city of Budapest and gorgeous Indian Summer sunshine. I couldn't have wished for more. Once I finish editing 500+ photos, I will post about our trip. There will be many foodie places tips, so stay tuned. To make the waiting easier, here's a quick recipe for my favourite smoked salmon salad. I made this recipe a few times already, and it's always a hit.

I usually use soured cream for the dressing. This time I didn't have any soured cream, so I replaced that with greek yogurt. It's a bit lighter but still very tasty.

Smoked salmon and potato salad with dill
Serves 2

400g baby potatoes
125ml (1/2 cup) greek yogurt (soured cream)
1 small garlic clove, crushed
1tsp lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 handful fresh dill, chopped
1 spring onion, chopped
170g smoked salmon, torn into small pieces

Wash the potatoes, put them in a small pot and cover with water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, prepare the yogurt dressing. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and season with salt a pepper. Stir in about half of the dill.
Strain the potatoes and let them sit for a while to cool down. Arrange potatoes and salmon on plates, sprinkle with the remaining dill and spring onion. Finally, spoon over the yogurt dressing and serve.

    Friday here in Bra (Piedmont) is market day and fish day, there is a guy selling his own farmed trouts and I always boy a fillet of ruby trout to have for dinner. This morning I also bought baby potatoes and I have greek yogurt in my refrigerator...Something tells me that I should try a variation on this recipe! It just looks to good to let it go!

  15. Thank you everyone for the lovely comments!

    @tiina - Thank you my dear, very kind of you! :)

    @kankana- I love anything with dill. But salmon and dill are just perfect combo, aren't they.

    @Juls - we missed you in Budapest!

    @Valeria - Lucky you that you have such a great market every Friday! I made the salad with smoked trout before and it's definitely a great variation on the salmon.

  22. @Marju - Glad to hear you like it! I have to try it with fennel. Sounds really lovely. :)

  23. Looks fantastic -- I didn't notice whether you cut the potatoes before or after you boiled them (not sure if it makes a difference). Which would you recommend? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Lynn - it doesn't makes any difference if you cut them before or after boiling them. I cut just some of them (before I boiled them) just to make them all same size. Otherwise the bigger ones would boil longer. You don't have to cut them if they are very small.
