The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Salmon

Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Salmon

This salad is summer. Crisp romaine lettuce, strawberries bursting with flavor, ripe avocado, blue cheese and broiled salmon make for one refreshing salad. It was absolutely perfect for a warm summer evening. Plus I felt super healthy eating this for dinner.

I got this strawberry salad recipe from my Mom, and kicked it up with the avocado and sockeye salmon from Alaska, courtesy of the folks over at Copper River/Prince William Sound Marketing Association.

Once again I kept the salmon very simple, seasoned it with Lemon and Black Pepper Seasoning and then put it under the broiler. And once again, it was delicious.

Ingredients

For the salad:
1 salmon filet (approx. 8 to 10 oz)
lemon and black pepper seasoning
3 to 4 cups romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
1-1/2 to 2 cups strawberries, cleaned and chopped
1 avocado, pitted and sliced
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup blue cheese

For the dressing:
1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon white vinegar

Directions
Preheat broiler and place oven rack about 6" from heat source.

Season salmon generously with lemon and black pepper seasoning. Place salmon skin side down on baking sheet covered in foil and broil for 6 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together salad dressing ingredients, and toss with lettuce, strawberries, avocado, red onion and blue cheese.

Cut salmon into desired serving size pieces.

Serve salad in bowls and top with salmon.

We also live in Seattle and the weather has been amazing and the seafood abundant so we had this salad last night for dinner out on the deck. My husband declared this is "my new favorite salad"! Flavors are delicious, it is refreshing, and light. Perfect balance between the sweet strawberries and avocado, rich salmon, and tangy blue cheese crumbles. We both thought the dressing is what made this a terrific salad, not too sweet, not too tart, but perfectly balanced. I recommend making the dressing first and letting it sit in the fridge to help the flavors blend together while you move on to the salmon and salad. Thanks for our new favorite warm weather dinner!
