Smoked Salmon Avocado Salad with Toasted Sesame Seeds

Recipe from fussfreecooking.com

Ingredients:-

  • Rocket leaves (arugula), about 60g (2 oz)
  • An avocado
  • 1/2 of a full sized lebanese cucumber
  • 100g (3 oz) smoked salmon (I used Tassal brand)
  • 1 tbsps sesame seeds

Dressing (measure to taste):-

  • 1 lime
  • about 1/2 cup of olive oil (adjust to your preference)
  • Salt to taste
  • A drop of sesame oil *optional*


In a small dry pan, toast 1 tbsp of sesame seeds over medium flame until lightly brown. Set aside. (2) Wash and dry the rocket leaves. Set aside. (3) Slice cucumber. Set aside. (4) Halve a lime and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Then add olive oil, sesame oil (if using), salt to taste and  1/2 tbsp of the toasted sesame seeds.  Whisk until it emulsifies. (5) In a salad bowl, add rocket leaves, cucumber and hand torn smoked salmon. (6) Use an avocado slicer to slice the avocado. To avoid the avocado from turning brown, I  dip slices of the avocado in the dressing and add into the salad bowl.  Scatter the remaning toasted sesame seeds as a finishing touch. (7) Serve with the dressing separately.
