Salmon salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette

Now that Easter is over, there’s a pretty strong chance you’re still finding that green plastic grass everywhere, candy wrappers stuffed under your couch cushions and a fridge full of multicolored hard-boiled eggs.

Delicious uses for leftover Easter eggs

As tasty as hard-boiled eggs are, there are only so many you can eat before you want to gag. Plus, with the short shelf life, it’s either eat them in one sitting Gaston style, or toss them. Since I’m not a fan of either option, I’ve made three tasty and unique recipes for all of those leftover eggs.

A delicious homemade pizza with gorgonzola cheese and bacon, a tangy vinaigrette and salmon salad and some delightfully spicy deviled eggs are the perfect solution to your abundance of eggs. As for the candy and grass clean-up? I suggest leaving that to your husband while you shop, drink or get a massage. That’s what they are for, right?

Salmon salad recipe with homemade balsamic vinaigrette

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces cooked organic salmon fillet
  • 3 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • Croutons (*optional)

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • Dashes of salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

Directions:

  1. Prepare the dressing by whisking the vinegar in a bowl with sugar, garlic and salt and pepper until it dissolves. Add in the oil until it’s fully mixed and add additional salt to taste.
  2. Prepare salad by mixing all the ingredients together (except the salmon, cheese and croutons). Slice the salmon into two pieces, remove the bottom scales and bones and place on top of the mixed salad. Sprinkle cheese and croutons on top. Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!
