Herring & Melon Salad

Author Notes: Bi Rite Market in San Francisco makes this great pickled herring. It doesn't have the cream sauce, which is how I usually see pickled herring, and it's tart and refreshing and delicious. I threw it into a melon & goat cheese salad and it tasted like it was meant to be.

If you can't find pickled herring without the cream sauce, I bet that kind would work just fine here. Or perhaps smoked trout.

Serves: 2

  • 1 cup melon, balled or cubed
  • 1/2 firm avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • a few handfulls arugula
  • 6 ounces pickled herring, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • fleur de sel, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon
  1. Combine first six ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss well. Add fluer de sel and pepper and toss again. Finish with juice from the lemon.
