Most of you know that I love to enjoy a salad for dinner. I fill a large bowl with spring mix and baby spinach then top it with all sorts of veggies. I even add a little fruit to my salads.

For me, salad is simple, convenient and healthy. There’s no way you can get bored with it because you can switch things up and add whatever types of greens and veggies you desire.

I’ve yet to share a salad recipe with you because I mostly focus on desserts and all things baked. But salad is such a huge part of my life I figured it’s time to share one of my favorite types of salad… Sesame Ginger Salmon Salad!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember the story I shared about a package full of Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits by Eat Smart. Have you tried them?

I was excited for the five different varieties that can be turned into appetizers, entrées, or side dishes. They really are perfect for any occasion.

Since I really don’t like to cook dinner, Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits make meal time simple because they are ready-to-go, delicious, and nutritious. Basically, they are everything that makes me happy.

Eat Smart Asian Sesame Vegetable Salad Kit combines six superfoods with crunchy bits and sweet sesame dressing. It’s a chef-inspired gourmet salad!

The sophisticated blend of red and green cabbage, carrots, and kale is enhanced by preservative-free toppings that include cashews and sesame sticks.

If you are anything like my husband you can’t enjoy a salad without some source of meat. So today I’m sharing a fun way to incorporate protein that pairs wonderfully with the Asian Sesame flavors.

I love glazed salmon and you can whip it up fairly quick to add to the salad. I made my own sweet sesame ginger glaze and basted the salmon as it cooked in the oven.

The great thing about seafood is it doesn’t take long to cook. You can still have dinner ready and on the table in under 30 minutes.

Feel free to try this with chicken also!
