Spinach Salad With Salmon

READY IN: 15mins

A great salad can keep you going for hours -- the key is to include enough protein-rich ingredients, such as salmon, goat cheese, and nuts.

I enjoyed this very much. Instead of broiling the salmon, I baked mine at 425F for 10 minutes. Too, I used Kumatoes instead of grape tomatoes. Served this with Recipe #216121, made with balsamic vinegar, fresh rosemary, chives, and cilantro. Tagged for Spring Photo Tag.
