Avocado and Smoked Salmon Salad (Selada Avocado Saus Asam) Recipe

Until I looked through my grandmother’s collection of recipes, I never realized the extent of Indonesian cuisine’s diversity. The memory and images I had of Indonesian food was one dimensional, focusing on the heavier flavors of shrimp paste, spices, and salt. This Avocado and Smoked Salmon Salad features the amazing taste of smoked salmon and a piquant dressing drizzled over the top. These ingredients may not sound like they are native to Indonesia, but because of foreign influences they have been integrated into Indonesia’s everyday cuisine. Light, nutritious, and easy to prepare, this is an ideal dish for low calorie eating.

Ingredients :

    • 1 head of arugula or romaine lettuce, washed and sliced
    • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 2 green onions (scallions), sliced
    • 8 oz (250 g) smoked salmon
    • 4 large eggs, hard boiled, and sliced
    • 2 large ripe avocadoes, sliced
