I was feeling a bit experimental one night and decided to have a salad with whatever was in my pantry/fridge. I ended up with this Salmon and Strawberry Salad, and I have to admit, it was pretty good.
The salmon was just an afterthought, since I wanted to add protein to my salad. Some people might not like it, as it was a contrast to the tangy-sweet dressing, but I think it went well with the leafy greens (of course, I love salmon so I might be a bit biased).
What you need:
Spring Mix veggies
1 tablespoon Almond Accents (honey roasted variety)
3 strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 pouch (3 oz) smoked salmon, shredded
What to do:
Wash vegetables thoroughly and dry them in a salad spinner. Put desired amount on plate and drizzle with a tablespoon (or more) of raspberry vinaigrette.
Add shredded salmon and strawberries, then top with almonds. Enjoy!
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:
1. Don't like salmon? Try other protein like boiled chicken or shrimp.
2. Italian dressing will taste good too. I used Raspberry vinaigrette because it works well with honey-roasted almonds.
