I have often been asked if I could post more fish type dishes. In all honesty I love fish but I always found it so hard to photograph. Shellfish have been a different story but for some reason fish in a photo never looks “good” in my opinion. Last weekend I made this salad for my husband and I and it was so delicious that I knew I needed to overcome my fear of photographing fish in order to share this recipe with you. So yesterday I made it again for my lunch and decided to reach for camera and hope to capture a photo that gives this salmon and salad the justice it deserves. I hope I did because I’m telling you guys it the the perfect summer salad and the salmon adds a whole other delicious component to the dish. So even if the photo’s don’t do it justice you must give this a try.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Amazing how the summer is flying by isn’t it?! Just wish the temperatures outside were reflective of the summer almost coming to an end. Boy is it hot there! Stay cool out there and I’ll see you back here in a few days to share another recipe.
