I was going to rate this four starts at first, but after having seconds that had been sitting for 1/2 hour I changed my mind. If you have time to let the flavors blend a bit more it's definitely worth it. We're not huge salmon fans here - it's one of those foods we eat because it's good for you, so any salmon recipe we find where my family says "Hey, this is actually pretty good." gets five stars and is a must-try for salmon lovers. The only addition we made was a can of mandarin oranges with about half the juice - it definitely helped stifle the "fishy" taste even more, and it wasn't bad even before.
Gets quite soggy. Not my favorite salad by any means.
Excellent! This could be a main course or a side dish to a holiday meal. I used canned smoked salmon. I even left the peas out. Hardly any preparation time and packed with protein, omega 3's, and vitamins.
A delightful addition to my Easter traditional meal. This salad was the hit of the dinner Excellent taste, hint of lemon, yummy salmon taste and enjoyable way to introduce asparagus. Just the right mix. Highly recommend for any occasion.
I made this on Good Friday for a luncheon date with an old friend. She doesn't love fish but ate every bite of this recipe. While shopping I forgot the pecans, and ended up using walnuts which I toasted and they were excellent (anyway probaby better for you since higher in Omega-3s). I found the mustard a little tart so I added 1T of sugar to make it a litter sweeter. Next time I might try a honey-musard for the dressing. Will definitely make again.
This salad was awesome, making it tonight for the second time. Since I'm not a fan of smoked foods, I grilled fresh salmon and added a little bit of tomato and onions. My husband couldn't get enough- and it's easy to prepare. YUMMY
This was good, the dressing needs more spice, I added 1/4 tea. dried dill after tasting original. I followed others suggestions and add mandarin oranges. Next time I will cube up goat cheese and add. I didn't have pecans so I used blanched almonds which I toasted. The asparagus does not need 5 min. it only takes about 3 min. so it is still crunchy.
I made this recipe tonight and it was great!
couldn't find any red lettuce at my grocery store, so I used a salad mix, and snow peas instead of frozen peas.
Also, a splash of balsamic vinegar to the dressing adds a great tanginess.
Great flavour combinations, and the toasted pecans were a wonderful addition.
easy and tasty!
