Smoked Salmon Candy Salad with Grilled Persimmons and Lemon Maple Vinaigrette

If you like the delicate flavors of smoked salmon, you’ll love this smoked salmon candy salad with grilled persimmons, arugula, and lemon maple vinaigrette. The marinade in this recipe produces a slightly sweet smoked salmon with a candy-like texture that’s similar to jerky… it’s finger-licking delicious! Chef Barbara Alexander from The Culinary Institute of America pairs the “salmon candy” with grilled permissions, but any seasonal fruit would work, including grilled plums, peaches, pears.
