I’ve been staring at my computer screen for like, 20 minutes now. Staring at the picture below and trying to think of what to say. I feel like this is one of those pictures that just about says it all about the dish…just look how pretty it is. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
Salmon, yum. Fruit salsa, yum. Combine the two and you have one stellar dinner!! The bright colors of the fruit and the light, refreshing flavors just scream summer. How can you resist?? Salmon can be a little dense sometimes, but it’s so healthy and filling…and the light, fresh flavors of the fruit pair so well with it.
