Perfect for those sweltering New York summer nights, this salad is a wonderful option for when the weather is suppressing your appetite. Although it’s a salad, the smoked salmon ensures that it is a satisfying dinner. The salad dressing is made from orange juice and is very refreshing. The combination of the sweetness of the orange juice and the saltiness of the smoked salmon activates the bliss point, and the watery yet crisp addition of the endives makes it a perfect salad for summer.
Pecan nuts are added to give the texture, but of course other nuts such as walnuts or almonds are also welcome.
Juice one of the oranges for dressing
