Smoked Trout Salad

Photo: Joshua Paul; Styling: Alicia Warner
Yield Makes about 3 cups
I love this combo: Pile the salad on dark bread, such as pumpernickel, then add sliced onion or sweet, crisp apple. Prep: 10 minutes.


  • 1 pound smoked trout, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 shallot, diced (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

How to Make It

  1. Place smoked trout in mixing bowl, and break into small pieces. Add chives and next 3 ingredients, and combine well. Season with salt and pepper. Chill, covered, until ready to serve.
