Updated on November 5, 2014

If you've ever been to Hawaii, you probably know about a dish called Lomi Lomi Salmon. It can be found in most deli sections of any supermarket in Hawaii, as well as restaurants serving traditional Hawaiian food. And if you've been to an authentic luau before, you've probably had a sample. As for Hawaiian food, it's probably one of the easiest to make at home.

A Hawaiian-Style Salad

My version of this dish is a bit more like a salad as I've added some avocados into the mix - traditionally there is none. And although I prefer it the traditional way if I'm eating it with Hawaiian food, I like to make it this way at home. One other difference in my recipe is the smoked salmon I use, as the original calls for salted salmon or lox, which is difficult to find in my area. This version of lomi salmon is also less salty and pairs well with a glass of white wine. You can even put spoonfuls onto sliced baguettes for a Hawaiian-style bruschetta.

      I've never been to Hawaii. In days long gone, we had a Polynesian friend who hosted true luaus a few times a year, but I don't remember if lomi salmon was part of the fare. That dish looks delicious, and if I were still eating salmon, I'd surely add the ingredients to my shopping list today. Thanks for sharing it. Gorgeous display too, as always. I encourage you to add this recipe to the plexo on my page titled, "I'm the cooking with whole grains & whole foods contributor on Squidoo."
