Fall Salad with Grilled Salmon

IMG_4455

It is now (un)officially fall, which means that I can unapologetically consume every pumpkin, apple, spice, and cranberry product within arms reach without anyone questioning my sanity (and season identifying skills).

My parents left me (and The Cat) home alone this weekend with a plethora of leftover grilled salmon, which we took upon ourselves to finish…

So, in honor of the new season, I decided to make a fall salad and top it with some of the grilled salmon.

And it was the perfect answer to all of my life’s dreams and goals.

 

It starts with the “fall” components of the salad.

Dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and some sliced green onion. Sweetness, crunch, and zip.

The lettuce I used was some arugula that was hanging out in my fridge, but you can use any type of lettuce you like.

Confession… the lighting was wonderful on/around my stove, so I took all my pictures on the range top. Please don’t judge me (but how awesome do the pictures look though!).

Place a piece of salmon on top of the arugula.

Then some red wine vinaigrette dressing.

This is how you make it (super easy and so yummy)!

And a good amount of mustard, salt, pepper, and dried oregano.

Put on the lid and shake vigorously!
