Potato salad with smoked cod and parsley vinaigrette

I like to use ingredients I already have in my kitchen, then add one maybe two things to create something new and different. This salad is a good example of that. I always have a variety of vegetables in my fridge and many different nuts in my pantry. Yesterday I bought smoked cod at Wholefoods and today I created this salad, which is definitely one I want to remember for the future. The parsley vinaigrette is very fresh and flavorful and can be used with many other salads. If you can’t find smoked cod, you can use either smoked mackerel or smoked salmon.

  • 1 pound small potatoes
  • 4 cups / 1 quart arugula or other greens
  • 1 red bell peber
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • App 3/4 pound / 350 gr smoked cod
  1. Start by boiling the potatoes.
  2. Meanwhile cut the red peber and cucumber into sticks.
  3. Wash the arugula and put it in a bowl.
  4. Make the dressing below and arrange everything in a big bowl.
  5. You’re done. Enjoy!

Parsley vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup / 60 ml fresh parsley (press it down good)
  • 4 tbsps olive oil
  • 2 tbsps water
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  1. Blend it all until smooth. A handheld blender is the fastest and easiest tool.
