4 servings

In a kind of updated homage to Swiss rosti, this light salad combines things we love: a bed of crispy potatoes, some delicious fish, flavorful greens and a perk-you-up dressing.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 small yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as Yukon Gold, scrubbed and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • Two 7-ounce cans boneless, skinless salmon, drained
  • 4 cups arugula


Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and cook, turning once, until brown and crispy, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover with foil to keep warm.

Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, shallot and vinegar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat and whisk in the buttermilk. Place the salmon in a medium bowl and toss with the warm dressing. Divide the arugula among 4 plates and top with the potatoes and salmon.
