Smoked Salmon Salad

This year, one day a month (from October to June) is devoted to a full eight hours of learning about a topic important to the Las Vegas community.  It's the central element of an intensive leadership program which also includes a class project and off-shoot events designed to expand the innovation of the leaders here in the Las Vegas Valley.  All that mental effort requires fuel, so each session day features breakfast, lunch and snacks. 

It's easy to mindlessly munch at these days; there's a lot of information to digest, and "heavy" issues are discussed.  However, instead of chomping thoughtlessly, I focus on high-quality eating and enjoying small tastes of the "good but bad" stuff.

My most recent session was held at the extraordinary new Aria resort & casino, and these dudes now to how make meeting-goers' mouths salivate!  I took advantage of the smoked salmon they offered at breakfast by skipping the bagel and cream cheese and creating this super simple, super tasty, and super healthy Smoked Salmon Salad.  Anytime you're at a business meeting or event, look at a food tables with a fresh eye and create your own fab feast!

  • Sliced smoked salmon
  • Sliced red tomatoes
  • Sliced red onions

  • Layer roughly equal portions of the salmon, tomatoes and onions on a plate.
  • Dice all with a fork and knife.
  • Toss gently until well blended.
