Apple, cheddar and walnut Salad

I have to confess… I am a salad freak… I love salads, and love to change them all the time. I’ll explain… I never do the same salad twice, I mean by definition a salad is a mix of ingredients, so I always mix it up.

Crunchy Salmon on a red quinoa, bean salad

  This is a recipe I make pretty much every week, because it’s a tasty and healthy meal. I love the crunch factor, especially with fish dishes. Salmon is the protagonist here, that fish is an omega-3 bomb so I try to eat lots of it. Furthermore, it doesn’t contain high mercury levels, unlike tuna or other… Continue reading Crunchy Salmon on a red quinoa, bean salad
