Reviews for Salmon Spinach Salad
"This was nice, not only did it get my hubby involved in the cooking process, it's a way to get him to eat more salad and fish. Trying to get him to eat healthier and cut back on fat and calories is like nailing jello to a tree. He liked this and plan on adding this to my go to's from now on."
"This salad is absolutely delicious."
"My family loved this! Gave it a $35.00 price tag if it were served in a fine dining restraurant. I substituted the goat cheese for feta and the walnuts for cashews, and then I used the "Cutie" oranges. I also tossed the spinach with everything except the oranges, green onions,feta and nuts. After assembling everything on the plate I sprinked on the nuts, crumbled feta, and onion and arranged the orange slices around the plate. This makes a wonderful plated meal."
