Smoked Salmon and Beet Salad

This vibrant Smoked Salmon and Beet Salad courtesy of the Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa is a guest favorite.  It combines smoked salmon and roasted beets with cranberries, fennel and a honey balsamic vinaigrette.   Best of all, it requires no cooking if you can find smoked salmon at your grocer or specialty food market.   Try the thicker cuts you find vacuum sealed in a pouch in the seafood department.  If all you can find is thinly sliced lox, that will be just as delicious.
