To prepare the vinaigrette, add all ingredients except oil to a blender. Add 3 tablespoons water. Blend at medium speed for 2 minutes, then slowly drizzle in oil with the blender running until dressing slightly thickens. Taste and adjust seasoning. Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill.

To assemble the salad, toss greens and dill together. Arrange on a platter. Arrange eggs, fennel and radishes on top of the greens. Roll up slices of smoked salmon and arrange on salad. Serve with crispbread and dressing on the side.
