I’m on a shy away from mayo kick lately. Even yogurt dressings don’t cut-the-mustard so to speak. Sorry about that, all. 😉
This is hard because my guy likes fish salad with mayo or even ranch-type dressings. Oil and vinegar on fish salad is foreign to him. Think tuna packed in water is supposed to be better for you so why add oil? I get it.
But I like vinaigrettes on fish salads like tuna so why not salmon?
Caprese salad is a summer favorite too. Fresh plucked basil, fresh picked garden tomatoes, fresh mozzarella (from the store) all layered and drizzled with olive oil a balsamic vinegar. Oh yeah! Perfect for a quick Weekday Supper.
Here’s the problem. No garden tomatoes yet.
Solution? Sun-dried tomatoes of course!
Salmon Caprese Salad
I used red wine vinegar in place of a more traditional balsamic so not to overpower the salmon flavor.
- 1 5-ounce bag flaked salmon or cooked salmon
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
- 1/4 fresh mozzarella balls (small sized or cut into cubes)
- 2 Tablespoons diced chives
- 1 Tablespoon fresh basil, sliced thin
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix together salmon, cheese, tomatoes, chives and basil.
In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Mix in enough dressing to reach your desired moistness. I personally like it on the heavy side!
