Remember my Foods from Chile Blogger Challenge post from a couple weeks ago? Well, I finally selected a recipe idea from your submissions and am sharing it today! This smoked salmon and avocado tartine uses 2 of the basket ingredients, smoked salmon and Chilean olive oil. Thanks to Jillian B for the excellent suggestion!
As soon as I saw her dish concept I knew I had to make it. The idea of pairing rich, buttery smoked salmon with fatty avocado sounded like magic. And it was. The subtle Chilean olive oil perfectly enhanced the ingredients. Brined capers brought just the right amount of salt and acidity while fresh dill really gave the tartine a seasonal lightness.
Jillian will be receiving a $30 gift bag full of Chilean goodies for coming up with this fantastic idea. Thanks also to Kitchen Play for organizing this event and Foods from Chile for providing me with the ingredients!
