Smoked Salmon and Arugula Salad

I went to Tampa with my friend Renee for our friend Christine's funeral last month. While we were in Tampa, we stayed with Renee's sister Belinda. Belinda made this salad for lunch one day and it was divine!!

Smoked Salmon and Arugula Salad

1.5 oz arugula
1 Tbs chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
2 scallions, finely diced
2 large avocados
1 Tbs lemon juice
8 0r 9 oz smoked salmon

Lime Mayonnaise

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs lime juice
finely grated rind of one lime
1 Tbs chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

Wash and drain arugula, if necessary. Shred the leaves and arrange in four small or one large bowl. Top with the chopped parsley and scallions.

Halve, peel, and pit the avocados and cut into thin slices or smally chuncks. Toss with lemon juice and place in bowl with arugula. Cut the smoked salmon into strips and scatter over the top.

Put the mayo into a bowl, then add the lime juice and rind and the chopped parsley. Mix together well. Spoon some of the lime mayo on top of the salad, garnish with parsley sprigs and lime wedges.
