Delectable shrimp are a good source of protein in this light, fresh salad. Serving it over leafy greens, such as spinach or arugula, adds even more nutrients.
Attention veggie lovers! Here’s your perfect summer salad. Coat some salmon with a combination of brown sugar, cumin, and coriander and grill on an oiled grate for 10-12 minutes. Place on a bed of fresh baby spinach, then dress with our tangy, Latin-tinged peach dressing, which utilizes peak season peaches pureed with lime juice, cumin, and olive oil. Take it to the next level with extra greens (arugula, friseé, Bibb), crunchy components (toasted nuts, pumpkin seeds), and fresh herbs (cilantro would be perfect here!).
The key to its amazing flavor: Let the dish marinate, covered, in a refrigerator for two hours before serving. Avocados, tomatoes, and watercress are nutritious additions to the shrimp and potatoes.
