Nutrition nuggets: Chives are nutrient-dense, full of vitamin K, folate, and antioxidants. They belong to the same class of vegetables as garlic, onion, and leeks, all of which have been linked to reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and high blood sugar. Chives also contain a small amount of choline – an important nutrient for mood, memory, and nervous system functions, and are said to also boost eye health.

 

Directions:

  1. Thinly slice the red onion; halve and thinly slice the radish; peel the cucumber, halve length-wise, remove the seeds, and thinly slice.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice and dill and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the cucumber, radish, red onion, salad leaves, and smoked salmon.
  4. Toss well.
