Smoked salmon is one of my favorite foods, so there was little chance I wouldn't love this recipe, and as it turns out I'd rank it a 5-star success!
The key to this recipe is really investing a little extra in good quality salmon. It makes all the difference. The delicately smooth, salty salmon is contrasted by the crunchy, sweet asparagus, juicy tomatoes, and crisp spinach. The bitterness of the lemon and rocket, and spicy mustard, is the kind of extra 'kick' I like most in this salad -- sometimes a little spice goes a long way.
