Method

  • 01
  • For tomato-cumin dressing, process tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste, cumin, paprika and vinegar in a food processor until well combined, then, with motor running, add oil in a thin, steady stream and process until incorporated. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Makes about 2 cups.

Combine salmon pieces with remaining ingredients in a large bowl, drizzle with a little tomato-cumin dressing and toss gently to coat.
