My husband loves salmon, but it is rather expensive when you have to buy it at the grocery store. One way I add salmon onto our menu without breaking the budget is by using it in salads. I only need 6-8 ounces of salmon to create a flavorful salad. My husband and kids love salmon and could probably eat it broiled without any seasoning. I don't like fish as much as they do, so I like to balance the strong flavor of the salmon with a really flavorful glaze. The honey mustard glaze caramelizes on top of the salmon while broiling creating a melt-in-your-mouth delicacy. One way I prevent food waste is to plate the salads and then add dressing. If you add dressing directly to a whole salad you have to finish it or the dressing will cause the greens to wilt. If you have any leftover salad, use it to create a Honey Mustard Salmon Salad Wrap for lunch the next day. Just spread dressing on a tortilla, add the salad, and wrap.
