Photo Friday: Salmon Salad

I got some great offer for magazines a while back, so what the heck, I picked out Martha Stewart Living. [tweetthis] I like trying new recipes and crafts.[/tweetthis]  But I gotta say, she makes things that could be easy, a bit difficult.

This week I made this delicious salad:

Martha Stewart - 1
My picture turned out as pretty as the one in the magazine.

She made the directions so difficult.  It took 6 steps with a bunch of back and forth and waaay more utensils than I like to use.  So here’s my easy way.

Soak a cedar grilling plank for at least 1/2 hour

(I get mine at Costco.  Great for grilling fish, and a no-mess cleanup.)

Mix up and set aside the dressing:

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)

1 T lemon juice

Boil potatoes and eggs:

Cover  1 pound of very small new potatoes with water and bring to a boil

Drop in 4 large eggs

Simmer for 12 minutes


Grill on Medium High heat:

1 pound of salmon on the plank (add a bit of lemon juice, salt and lemon pepper to taste)

1 pound of snow pea pods coated in EVOO (I used a wok-type thing for the grill, but you can do this on the stovetop, too.)

Toss everything together:

Flake up the salmon into bite sized pieces, peel and halve the eggs, halve the potatoes

Add a handful of lettuce, spinach, watercress, or whatever green thing you like.

Enjoy! Take a picture and include it in the comments below.
