Smoked salmon salad

The dogs were not happy about going for their walk today.

This is Abby trying to walk with her eyes closed. She HATES rain((
 I continued my colorful theme of the day with my lunch.

I gathered a bunch of unlikely ingredients:

Smoked salmon, carrot, red pepper, Miso Mayo, nutritional yeast and some baby greens.

Miso Mayo is one of my indulgences. I love the salty miso taste combined with its rich texture. But be warned: It can be addicting. I have been known to spread it on crackers and just much away.

For the dressing I tried this combination:

1 1/2 Tbsp. of Miso Mayo, the juice of 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 a mandarin orange whisked together with about 2 Tbsp. of the nutritional yeast.
I added nutritional yeast until it was the consistency of a slightly runny mustard.

The dressing was good but it was borderline too tart. Next time I think I would leave out the lemon and just use the juice of a whole orange.

Curls of smoked salmon on top.

As I was preparing the salad - I realized my knives are getting dull. Does anyone have a knife sharpener that they love and could recommend?
