This is one of my most requested recipes from friends and family, and it’s one of my favorites!
This delicious salad recipe is so versatile, you can make it ahead and put it in the fridge for later or you can eat it warm with the salmon right out of the oven.
You can top the salad with just about any protein, this recipe calls for baked salmon (which is delicious and my personal favorite) but you can also top it with chicken, steak, tofu… or nothing at all!
This is also a great dish to make and deliver for a friend or family member, I seem to have a lot of friends who are pregnant lately so this dish has been a goto for delivering to them (no pun intended)!
