    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    You've had a long morning of snorkeling, and you're craving some jerk (no, NOT the hirsute one in the Speedo on the chaise lounge next to yours), but you don't want a heavy meal that might cause belly pooch over your bikini bottom. Well, The Kitchen Tourists have just the thing for you: fiery hot jerk salmon, resting on a bed of fresh crisp tossed salad with an island twist, all topped with a sweet and tangy tropical vinaigrette. There, now you're satisfied, and you can still rock that hot little outfit you picked out for the evening waterside festivities. Team contributions that made this recipe what it is are as follows: Captain evelyn/athens = warm allspice and nutmeg, Ed&Theresa = fresh salmon, fluffernutter = kicky ginger, MA HIKER = spicy hot peppers, Mandy from Oz = crisp cilantro, Laffer = cooling papaya, ms.susan = fire-taming coconut milk, TansGram = filling beans, Tisme = zingy lime, tunasushi = crunchy cashews, Muffin Goddess = sweet mango Life is good, mon! Enjoy! (P.S. special thanks to Team Captain evelyn/athens!) NOTE: as noted by a reviewer (and myself, actually, after the fact), the dressing recipe makes way more than you'll need for this salad. The dressing is good on just about any kind of salad (I know, because I went through A LOT of salad trying to use up my batch of dressing lol), but if you don't eat salads very often, you may want to half or quarter the dressing part when you make this. :)

    1. 1
    2. 2
      Combine all wet jerk seasoning ingredients (garlic through peanut oil) in the bowl of a food processor. Process until mixture turns into a paste.
    3. 3
      Rub jerk paste onto all sides of the salmon fillets. Allow rubbed salmon to stand in refrigerator for 1 hour (at least 30 minutes if you are short on time). Wash the food processor bowl and set aside to use for the vinaigrette.
    4. 4
      Once the salmon is ready to cook, plug in your Foreman grill and set it to 300 degrees F. When the grill is heated to temperature, lightly spray the grill plates with nonstick cooking spray. Place the salmon fillets on the grill, close the lid, and set timer for 8 minutes. Once salmon is cooked, remove from the grill.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      While salmon is marinating, combine first seven ingredients for the Tropical Vinaigrette (mango through honey mustard) in bowl of the food processor. While processor is running, drizzle in olive oil until fully incorporated. Stop processor and add salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      Toss all salad ingredients except for cashews together.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      Divide tossed salad into 4 bowls. Sprinkle cashews over each bowl. Pour desired amount of vinaigrette over each salad, then top with a piece of cooked salmon. If desired, drizzle more dressing over the salmon, or cut salmon into chunks and toss it into the salad. Serve immediately.

      This recipe might have a lot of ingredients but it is so worth the time and effort. The cast party gobbled all up. Just the right spice is offset by the mango dressing. Made for ZWT9.

      Impressive salad!! I settled in to making this salad and really had fun with it. The marinade is soooooo good on the salmon. The mango dressing is the perfect complement to the spiciness of the salmon. I adore all the add-ins to the salad..ex cashews, beans, etc... It all worked well together and the outcome was fabulous. Thank you for creating this gem. Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9

      There is an expression, 'you eat with your eyes', and you most certainly do with this recipe because it is pretty as a picture! The GREAT thing is it tastes every bit as good as it looks - fresh, sweet, spicy, sour - it really has it all. Thanks.
