Salmon, quinoa, asparagus, spinach and passion fruit dressing
This salmon salad is one of my go-to lunch when I want an easy but nutritious meal.
Salmon is super healthy and just too delicious. It goes so well with the passion fruit. Believe me, give it a try!
If you are not a quinoa lover, then you can use barleys or brown rice instead.
Let me know once you tried it and share with me your creations!
