I bought a huge container of salad greens at Sam’s Club and was determined NOT to let it go to waste. One Friday while I work I asked The Boy (who now has a faux-hawk, just FYI) to get some salmon out to thaw. When I got home from work I began to look through my list of recipes I’d bookmarked. I came across this recipe from Joelen’s blog for a simple salmon she served over salad (try saying THAT 3x fast!). I didn’t have any fresh herbs so I used all dried. I also jazzed it up with some blueberries & craisins I had on hand, and topped it with feta cheese. It was VERY yummy. The Boy picked off all the blueberries, but that’s fine with me, I’ll eat them! I topped it with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
