Salmon Salad with Lime Cilantro Dressing

Print

This is my new favorite way to eat one of my favorite fish-salmon! I make a delicious dressing with lime, garlic and cilantro and scoop it on top of salmon prior to baking. Then I serve it on top of salad or any greens with more of the flavorful dressing. You can also add a scoop of Marine Collagen to the dressing. This will give you extra benefits of collagen, such as stronger bones and joints and improved gut health. Plus Marine Collagen is great for your skin!

I love eating it with the skin for the extra omegas and collagen, but you can also leave skin off if you want. Either way, you will love this simple and tasty way to make salmon.

Further Food Commentary:

Salmon is one of the healthiest proteins that is good for both heart and brain health. Salmon is rich in Omega 3 and low in saturated fats. It is also a great source of Vitamins A and B12, and it's high in antioxidants! Just make sure to look for wild salmon which is better for the environment and healthier for you.
