Delicious! I made the full amount of salad but only two salmon fillets as there is only the two of us. I'll be on the look out now for fresh salmon so that we can finish the leftover salad!
Tried this and WOW!! It was great. The recipe mentions lime juice but doesn't list it - you need the juice of 2 limes. I like the recipe as is with the salmon served as a filet on top of the "salad". The honey glaze for the salmon really cuts the fishy taste and carmelizes nicely to give the salmon a nice texture. Best eaten when made - not as great reheated.
Made this with double the spinach and shredded the salmon, tossing it into the salad itself. (you can then use the same amount for a larger number of people). Four couples thoroughly enjoyed this recipe.
