What a perfect weekend! Date night on Friday followed by a pool day with the girls and a deliciously relaxing night in full of girl-talk and movies.
This is a prime example of why salads are one of my favorite things in life. At work, I’m constantly asked “Do you eat a salad every day?” Yes, most days. And then they proceed to say, “Well, if my salads looked like that I’d eat salads every day.” I hate to think what their salads look like. Salads should be piled high with lettuce, spinach and veggies. And if you don’t have greens, it’s okay – salads can be lettuce-less. Then you need to add cheese (goat and feta are two favorites) and perhaps some beans (any bean will work). I’ve also been known to add a dollop of hummus to my salads.
On Saturday night, I was in charge of the salad (appetizer will be shared tomorrow!). Salmon was the protein of choice. Simply salt, pepper and sprinkle with garlic powder. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. Exactly 12 minutes. Also on the salad was creamy avocado, blueberry goat cheese (one of my favorite TJ items), spicy-sweet pecans for crunch (another TJ must-find), tomatoes bursting with flavor and a cilantro dressing that’s to-die-for (also from TJs). Drool.worthy. Hands-down one of my best salads, though my salads don’t disappoint.
I even made a non-salmon lover love salmon.
What do you like on your salads?
