This country-style salad created by my sis in law brings you one step closer to summer with all its delicious ingredients. It is a modern potato salad with scandinavian vibes from the dill and smoked salmon. It is a refreshing change to traditional salads that is full of flavour and has a good balance of acidity from the apples and lemon juice. The kale is gently stirred in butter and garlic that is then tossed with all the other ingredients, a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. The potatoes, radish and avocados infuse all the juices making it extra tasty and creamy. It is topped with a boiled egg, some smoked salmon and a dill packed sour cream dijon dressing.
Mix together sour cream, original dijon mustard, dill and a bit of lemon juice
Begin by boiling the potatoes. Meanwhile, add a dollop of butter to a medium heated pan and add in the chopped kale and garlic. Stir gently for about 5 minutes until cooked. Meanwhile into a large bowl, add the chopped avocado, spring onion, radish, apple and potatoes. Mix in the kale, olive oil, black pepper, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Stir around so everything is coated with the juices and leave to marinate for a while you make the sour cream dressing and boil an egg. Ready to plate: Place the salad on a plate, add some rough sizes of smoked salmon, the halved egg and a drizzle of dressing on top. Add a bit more dill and ground black pepper on top.
