  • 12 oz cooked salmon flaked into chunks
  • 8 small white or red potatoes boiled, cooled, sliced
  • 1 bunch asparagus spears ends trimmed, poached or blanched
  • 4 hard boiled eggs cooled and quartered
  • 1 avocado cut into chunks
  • 1 English cucumber sliced
  • 1 zucchini or summer squash
  • fresh, crisp lettuce leaves


  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil

  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp each parsley and chives chopped


  • In a large pot of heavily salted water cook the eggs for 3 minutes then add the potatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork tender. Carefully remove both with a slotted spoon and drain.
  • Drop the asparagus in the water used for boiling the eggs and potatoes and blanche for 3 minutes on medium heat. Remove from water and rinse to stop the cooking process. Place the cooked eggs, potatoes and asparagus in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Cut the cucumber and zucchini or summer squash into 1/4" slices.
  • Flake or break the cooked salmon into pieces. Cut up the avocado and dice the herbs. Remove shell from egg and quarter.
  • Mix the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar and shake to emulsify.
  • Place cleaned, crisp salad greens on a platter and lay the salad ingredients in diagonal rows on top. Drizzle the vinaigrette on top and serve chilled. Season to taste.
