Ginger Salmon Salad Recipe

Ginger Salmon Salad Recipe

“Whenever I serve this salad to company, people always tell me they love it,” Nancee Melin assures from Tucson, Arizona. “After trying something similar at a restaurant, I duplicated it from taste and memory at home. It’s a cinch to prepare and cooks in no time. If you prefer, you can easily change the fruit depending on what’s in season.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), skin removed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (5 ounces) spring mix salad greens
