Raw zucchini doesn’t have a ton of flavor, but its texture is really delicate, so it’s perfect for this salad.

Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 zucchini, rinsed and ends trimmed
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1 bunch radishes, rinsed, tops and tails trimmed, and sliced as thinly as possible
  • Small handful dill fronds

For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 15 to 20 grinds fresh black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped dill fronds


Use a peeler to shave the zucchini lengthwise on each side until you start to hit the seedy middle part.

Lay a couple of pieces of smoked salmon in the middle of a plate. Top the salmon layer with a heap of shaved zucchini, radish slices, and dill fronds.

Whisk the dressing ingredients together until smooth. Drizzle the dressing over the top of each salad.
