Refreshing salad with gravad lax

Refreshing and easy to prepare, this salad is an excellent option for lunch. If you want to prepare your own gravad lax – and subsequently cut the costs – you will find my recipe here. If you are feeling less adventurous you can also use store-bought salmon for equally good results. Bear in mind that curing salmon takes about 2 to 3 days.

Salmon has high omega-3 fatty acids and a lot of protein, but smoking, salting and curing makes salmon lose about 1/3 to 2/3 of its original omega-3 content. But some Atlantic and farmed salmon are raised on special omega-3 feed, and therefore make up for the loss of nutrients.

Ingredients: 

4 tomatoes

0.5 cucumber

200 gr green beans

Iceberg lettuce

4 boiled potatoes

300 gr gravad lax

3 hard-boiled eggs

Olive oil

Instructions:

Boil the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Trim and cut the green beans and boil them in salted water for about 10-15 minutes. Slice the tomatoes and the cucumber. Shred the iceberg lettuce leaves and cut the gravad lax into 1 inch/2.54 cm cubes. Boil the eggs for about 10-12 minutes and cut them into four pieces. Combine all the ingredients and avoid excessive mixing. Drizzle some olive oil over the salad and serve.
