Sesame Salmon Salad

Last Updated on

I’ve got a great summer salad for you today. It’s light but still substantial enough to be a main course. For the dressing I came up with a sesame-ginger combo whose flavor stays in the background but still ties the different components together nicely.

As you can imagine, this salad is very easy to put together, you simply bake the salmon in the oven and then whisk together the dressing with sesame oil and seeds, freshly grated ginger, olive oil, lime juice and honey.

      Thank you, Maggie! I was surprised at how well the different flavors came together. I hadn’t originally planned on strawberries but they looked really good in the store so I put them in. :-)
