Salads are perfect for summer meals. Salmon makes it better.
After Saturday’s wedding, we were told to take leftovers. There was no argument on this end as we bagged up some lamb and salmon. Now, what to do with all those leftovers? We decided, since we had a pretty heavy lunch at my husband’s aunt and uncle’s house earlier that afternoon after church that we wanted something light and he suggested a spinach salad with some salmon. Perfect. So I threw some spinach into the bowl along with slices of red onions, halved cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and tossed it all together before plating it and putting a good sized hunk of salmon on top. Yummo! We also decided we wanted some cheesy garlic bread, so I made some of that to accompany it. Not too heavy that you feel like blehck (or whatever your internal vomit voice sounds like) but not so light you feel like screaming, “Lay off me, I’m STARVING!!!” (or whatever your internal hunger voice sounds like.)
