“Such a traditional Scandinavian recipe combining the salmon with the dill. I ate my fair share of seafood salads such as this during my trip to Sweden. Recipe from Eating Well. They recommend serving it with some fresh rye bread or rye crisps (readily available in most grocery stores).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in rice and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cover pan tightly. Cook until the rice is tender and has absorbed the water, 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse the rice under cold water until cool.
  2. Combine the rice with peas, cucumber, dill, scallions and smoked salmon in a serving bowl.
  3. Whisk together yogurt, oil, lemon zest and juice, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; pour over the salad and stir to combine.
