This was very good in the summer when I didn’t want to heat up the kitchen- cooked the salmon in microwave. I used pepitas instead of walnuts. Very good!

Easy and Fast! I left off the walnuts, and it tasted great! I used the same quantity of salmon to make 4 dinner salads. Guests thought I was making dinner fancy.

Quick, easy, and delicious! The toasted walnuts and cranberries complement each other very well. Can't wait to make this one again.

I added green onions and used vinaigrette I had on hand. Delicious and definitely one that will be used often.

I had never had Salmon before. I was always hesistant to try it. I finally thought this looked like an easy enough recipe and so I tried it...It was easy and fast to prepare and delicious! I had decided because it was so low calorie I used 2- 5 oz pieces of Salmon per person...and I used a Raspberry Vinaigrette I had already on hand....Can't wait to have it again!
