Lox, a.k.a. smoked salmon, is lean, mean, and mega-flavorful. It's loaded with omega-3s, protein, and an arsenal of other benefits. You can't go wrong with this delish fish.


  • For caper-lemon dressing:
  • 1/4 cup caper brine (from caper jar)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey or agave nectar (optional)
  • For salad:
  • 4 cups wild arugula
  • 1/3 cup capers
  • 1 cup canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup crumbled chèvre (goat cheese)
  • 12 thin slices lox (wild smoked salmon)



1. Whisk together all dressing ingredients, adding honey or agave, if desired.
2. In a large salad bowl, combine arugula, capers, and cannellini beans. Toss with half the vinaigrette. Top salad with chèvre and smoked salmon. Serve additional dressing on the side, if desired.
