 Salmon with Sweet Salsa
"After years of not eating salmon, I tasted it one night at a formal dinner, where it was served with a sweet topping that I really liked," recalls Rebecca Reece from Henderson, Nevada. "After experimenting on my own, I came up with this sweet, spicy combo that’s become a favorite. I serve with fried rice I pick up on my way home from work."
