I am so excited to share this recipe with you today. It is so crazy good.
I love seafood and citrus together - so this salad is a match made in heaven. If you don't like seafood - you should! I'm kidding. Kind of.
There are so many lovely citrus varieties now-a-days. You can really use whatever citrus you like, but for this salad I used a naval orange, a blood orange, and a red grapefruit. I made a simple baked salmon seasoned only with salt and pepper, and a sweet citrus honey dressing. The combo is heaven.
The fresh taste of the citrus paired with the buttery texture of the salmon, the crisp greens and the crunch of the almonds is to die for. This is such a fast meal that you can easily whip this up at lunch time. You have my permission to feed yourself a delicious lunch. Put the chicken nugget down and step away. You deserve better! You'll have this meal done in 20 minutes flat and you won't regret it.
I shared this recipe over on Spring and Chelsea along with a few tips for caring for yourself. Check it out!
