Everyday Salmon Salad

Sidewalk Shoes Salmon Salad

I call this my Everyday Salmon Salad.  Why?  Because it’s so easy you could make it everyday and it’s so good you could eat it everyday!

I mentioned before that I recently rediscovered my broiler after going from a gas oven to an electric oven.  I hated my gas broiler.  The only thing that broiled was anything in the center of the pan.  So while the center burned, the food on the outside of the pan didn’t cook enough.  Hated it.  But now, I totally love my electric broiler.  It’s fast, every thing broils evenly.

My favorite thing to broil?  Salmon.  Hands down.  I spray it with a little olive oil (love the Pampered Chef oil mister thingy), salt and pepper, place on a baking sheet and broil for 6 minutes.  Done.  Gorgeous and tasty. 

So, for this salad, while the salmon was broiling I grabbed some baby greens from the fridge, found some carrots and radishes, which I gave a quick whirl with the shredding disk on my food processor and put it in a bowl.  When the salmon was done, I flaked it into the bowl, tossed with a homemade vinaigrette, a little more salt and pepper, some fresh bread and that was dinner.  Dinner in less than 15 minutes. 


This will be my entry for Souper Sundays (Soup, Salad, or Sammie) hosted by Deb at Kahakai Kitchen.

    I hear you on the broiler issue. Growing up, we had electric. I hated the stove, but the broiler was great. Now I have gas, and I love the stove, but hate the broiler. And not that it’s as good as fresh, but with the dog days of summer approaching, let’s all remember one of the better canned products: salmon. On so many days when it is just too hot, it’s made the difference between a bowl of cereal and a real meal.

    I’m pinning this! Looks delicious. I’m back to cutting back. Maybe I’ll try your regimen from last summer since you were so successful.

    Saw you had a salad post so I added it to the round up. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays. It definitely looks like something I could eat and look forward to eating often. ;-)
