Refreshing Salmon and Arugula Salad

salmon and spinach salad


Crunchy, refreshing and chocfull of protein.  I simply can’t get enough of this salad.  I’ve literally been shoving tonnes of it down my throat recently, its kinda scary. And to tell you frankly, I really enjoy eating it.  It is far from boring!

I just had to share this with you because of its simplicity to make.  It has very few ingredients and it’s ready in a jiffy.  I usually have some sort of greens on hand, be it spinach, arugula or baby romaine.  The green, I however prefer is arugula. The slightly bitter bite it lends to the dish, against the tang of the lemon and the buttery olive oil is a pure match!  Adding the salmon for chewiness and the crunchy snap of the cucumbers makes a delicious and juicy combination.

It truly is somewhat addictive, so I do caution you… there is such a thing as having too much good 😉
