Salads are a hit at my house, and this smoked salmon and spinach salad makes the top of the list. It incorporates spinach , a great alkalizing green with some amazing smoked salmon, and whole grain pasta. This is a perfect recipe as a side salad, or as an entrée. Its all up to you of how you want to serve it. I have to say its delicious, and quick. You can add some kale or dulce to the spinach too. It s your preference.
- 2 oz. smoked salmon
- 1 cup fresh organic spinach
- (optional) 1/2 cup organic kale or dulce
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 tomato ( organic) sliced
- 2 tbsp. olive oil and vinegar
- @ tbsp. flaxseed optional
Place the greens in a large bowl. If you are adding the Kale or Dulce, make sure to blend the greens well. You do not want one type of green just sitting on the bottom. Place the cooked whole grain pasta on top. Make sure you have rinsed the pasta with cold water, and drained thoroughly. Place the Walnuts on top , as well as the tomatoes. Slice the smoked salmon in to small pieces , and place on top. Add the flax seed and dressing on top. If you are making this , just for one person, stick with the serving sizes. If you are making a bigger salad, for your family , or a cookout, make sure to double the ingredients. I would advise if you are making a bigger salad, to double the dressing ingredients, and let everyone add their own dressing to their salads. Many people like more dressing than others do.
This salad is full of antioxidants, as well as very alkalizing. If you would like to use a certain green to spinach, pick the one that you like best and use that. They all taste amazing.
