I have a hard time creating recipes as everything I make is just intuitively thrown together.
AND so many people who I’ve fed this dish to LOVE it so I did my work and measured it all out!
The thing is this salad is so delicious and nourishing.
Full of good fats, proteins, and yummy-ness this is a common dish we have at the Wells household.
Wild-caught salmon is so nourishing AND satiating! One of the most wonderful things it contains is anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids which are PARAMOUNT to good health!
Do you know what else I love about this concoction?
You can mix up the protein! I use this recipe for chicken, tuna, and salmon salads. The choice is yours!
You can also add SO many nourishing and nutrient-dense herbs.
Not only do herbs provide incredible flavors but are packed with SO many health benefits… it’s not even funny. You'd better not be laughing!
The herbs I love to use are:
#1 DILL! Dill is a good source of vitamin C (awesome antioxidant), fiber (vital for your gut!), folate (your cells need it to divide and produce DNA), calcium (healthy bones), riboflavin (healthy cell function), manganese (helps with protein digestion), and iron (healthy blood!)!
#2 BASIL!!! Basil contains powerful antioxidants, helps reduce inflammation, AND has natural antibacterial and apoptogenic properties! If you don’t know about adaptogens, they are SO good for your nervous system. Check out this study here!
#3 PARSLEY! Parsley contains so many important nutrients! It’s SUPER great for digestion, rich in antioxidants, and is rich in vitamin K (vital for healthy bones and normal blood clotting)!
I love adding ALL of these beautiful herbs to this salad! Ideally, using fresh organic (or even better homegrown) is best, but don’t let this deter you! Use your dried spices instead! They will still add tons of flavor AND health benefits!
It’s super easy to put together and saves well for a few days so if you make it in advance you can enjoy it when you need a quick meal!
Serving size: 2-4
The trick to eating healthy is creating time in your life to plan, prepare, and create food that nourishes and LOVES your body.
This dish is super easy to throw together and can hang in your refrigerator for up to 5 days. So in those hangry moments, you can shuffle to your fridge and find something that not only does the job, but is SO good for that glorious body of yours!
