Love this - would never have thought of putting this together myself but eat it regularly now. A lovely quick, healthy supper and a great way to eat a portion of oily fish.

Whilst I agree this isn't a recipe, more of an idea of the smörgåsbord-style of presentation, I don't think it deserves all this negativity. Also, as someone currently living in Sweden, all the flavours here such as the salmon, dill, beetroot, cucumber and rye are text-book Swedish flavours! I could step into any cafe along the high street here and find these things on offer for lunch.

Not tried this, but looks good! I will try but felt that I had to leave a comment about the comments!! I was brought up by simple rules, one on the best was "If you have nothing good to say, best not say anything" There's a few here who could learn from that! Well Done Good Food, keep it up and don't take the negatives to heart...

This is a good idea, even if it isn't a recipe, and it's the sort of presentation that would inspire me to transpose it to say, Indian, Chinese or Mexican cusine for example. So, I've got it bookmarked to spark my imagination when I'm feeling uninspired.

Whilst I agree that this is not strictly speaking a recipe, more "construction cooking", it is useful inspiration for those of us devoid of imagination at the end of a long day (particulary as I cook for a living too!). I particularly liked the fact that, whilst it may not strictly speaking be Scandinavian, it uses fresh and light ingredients. We enjoyed it as it made a nice change from bread, cheese and cold meats.

I have my own version. Get some rye bread (or other bread if you prefer). Go to the fridge and take out anything that still looks edible. Cut things decoratively add a bit of dressing (if you wish) and arrange on a plate.
Is this a recipe?

I agree with most of you,This is not cooking,This is not even Scandanvian food apart from the bread. I have been to sweeden loads of times and its nothing like this.Sorry Good Food.

I think it's a wonderful inspiration for recreating a special cuisine at home. Thank you, Good Food!

I agree with kebabthief. This is not an inspiring "recipe". Come on GoodFood, you can do much better than this!

Can this really be classed as cooking?
