Impress your guests with this fancy leek salad with salmon served on French Baguette.
For couple of weeks now I am obsessed with smoked salmon and whenever I am in store I buy it. I usually eat it with chive or mustard. However, recently I tried with my leek salad that I make often at my home. It was great combination and I already knew that I have to make a blog post with recipe.
Salmon is very mild in taste. That’s why it tastes great with stronger flavors like chive, onion, mustard or horseradish. Or even lemon pairs perfectly with this fish. I used it for my Easy Lemon Rosemary Salmon dinner few months ago.
The whole concept of my salad served on french baguette was to make elegant and special appetizer for a party. Therefore, if you are planning to make Christmas Party; this fancy appetizer is great for this occasion.

What a great way to use smoked salmon! I love that stuff so much I usually buy a pack of smoked salmon for a recipe and another pack just for me to devour plain. I have a problem…I know! I’m actually planning on buying a smoker to learn how to make my own smoked salmon! Great recipe 🙂
I am obsessed with salmon lately too. Thank you for your visit to my blog:)
