Wild salmon salad with fresh blueberry vinaigrette is a deliciously easy superfood-packed meal perfect for busy evenings on the run!
Recently, I attended the IDEAWorld Fitness Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. One of the highlights of this event was browsing all of the booths in the nutrition and fitness expo. I love trying out all of the latest and greatest fitness equipment and healthy food products. If you know me, you'd know that I was in heaven there!!
One of my favorite new product finds was the wild smoked salmon from the Honey Smoked Fish Company. It always had a LONG line of people waiting for their Five Superfood Salad. I rushed to Sams Club the day after I got home to stock-up. It was THAT good!
This easy Salmon Salad with Fresh Blueberry Vinaigrette is my own version of their superfood salad creation and it takes less than 5 minutes to make. Gotta love easy! This tasty salad is perfect for a hot summer day or busy weeknight meal.
How To Make Blueberry Salmon Salad
You can easily substitute grilled or baked wild salmon for the smoked salmon if you can't find it in your area. I love big salads for dinner in the summertime. It keeps my kitchen cool and makes clean-up a breeze.
A few more salad favorites are Flank Steak Fajita Salad, Grilled Shrimp, Corn and Avocado Salad and Mediterranean Chicken, Spinach and Quinoa Salad. They are all great healthy summer meal options and easy throw-together meals.
If you try out the honey smoked salmon or this salmon salad recipe, give me a shout and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
