Salmon Salad without Mayonnaise
2 cans canned salmon, drained well
1 red bell pepper chopped fine
1 small bottle of capers, drained and patted dry
1 small shallot chopped fine
2 teaspoons of dried dill
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped fine
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of very hot water
2 tablespoon of cider vinegar
2 teaspoon of soy
1 tablespoon of sherry or marsala wine
Put canned salmon in bowl and break apart gently with fork. Add remaining five ingredients and toss gently. Right before serving prepare dressing of last five ingredients. First whisk honey with hot water then add remaining 3 ingredients and whisk well drizzle over salad and toss gently. To the salad I had added dry mustard but next time I think I'll use dijon mustard in the dressing instead.
We had this salad at the farmer's market; I put the salad containers on a bed of ice in a pot so they stay cold. I made the first part of the salad the night before and made the dressing the next morning and added it to the salad then. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
