SUPER FOODS SALAD WITH CHIVE VINAIGRETTE

Asparagus,fresh blueberries and salmon are very healthy, although I did not think they would work well together in a salad. I was inspired by a recipe form the California Asparagus Commission and tweaked the dressing just a little. I substituted lime juice for the lemon juice and added a sweet chili powder to make the vinaigrette.

Instructions

  1. 1Spread salad greens into large salad bowl.
  2. 2Tear salmon into medium pieces and arrange on greens.
  3. 3Sprinkle asparagus, blueberries and chopped nuts throughout the bowl.
  4. 4Top with lemon zest.
  5. 5In a jar with a lid, add all vinaigrette
    ingredients.
  6. 6Shake well. Stir1/2 to 3/4 of the dressing into the bowl.
  7. 7Plate individual salads chilled with the remaining dressing alongside.
