This sweet mustard yoghurt dressing is extremely versatile and goes well with pretty much everything. It is particularly compatible with the smoked chicken in this recipe. Poppy seeds are very popular in Nordic cuisine and breads are often sprinkled with them. A famous crispbread is covered with less-common white poppy seeds and legend tells it that these crispbreads were later banned from prisons because inmates tried to get a kick from them! As well as being a great combination of flavours and textures, this salad is also an example of the ease with which you can make Nordic dishes from what is already in your refrigerator. Sure, you may not have smoked chicken on hand but it’s easy enough to find (or you could even make some yourself).
