Rainbow of fruits and veggies

Tonight Jeff was having steak so I made a dinner for myself that only I could appreciate. I made a salad loaded with fruits and veggies. We are stuffed to the roof with produce around here. I need to start coming up with ways to make a dent in it.

In the salad mix
Green leaf lettuce
sliced carrots
sliced red pepper
diced cucumber
broccoli florets

Blackberry vinaigrette
handful of blackberries warmed up and crushed up
1 tsp. Newman's light balsamic vinaigrette
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
drizzle of raw honey
lemon juice
mix together

The salad was topped with barbecued local wild coho salmon, that was glazed with whole grain mustard and sprinkled with dill, salt, and pepper.

The salad was so good. The dressing was a little over powering with all the blackberries. Next time I would thin it out a little more.

Brownie's topped with vanilla bean frozen yogurt might be on the menu for later?


  1. Dang, why have I not thought to put berries in balsamic for a dressing? Sounds like perfection!

  2. oh wow, I'd say that's the healthiest bowl of salad I've ever seen. Love the sound of that dressing and the salmon on top. I'll take some brownies please! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere :)
