Southerwestern Salmon Salad

Leave a comment

I don’t really know if salmon is a common component of Southwestern Cuisine. Oh well. This tastes good.

This is another “practically not a recipe” recipe, since it is basically taking things you really like and mixing them together in a nice way. I have to share, though – it was delicious.

It is both warm and cold, and quite filling. FYI: that bowl above is not a normal sized bowl. It is, in fact, mixing bowl sized. Please don’t judge me.

Gather your ingredients:

  • Romaine lettuce hearts
  • Ripe tomatos
  • Pinto beans  (as seen in the plastic leftovers container above… it was from tacos)
  • No-salt-added whole kernel corn (again, in a plastic container)
  • Salsa
  • Ranch dressing (I like the Greek yogurt version from Bolthouse Farms, in the produce section)
  • Pink salmon, from package or can
  • Hot sauce, optional

… and whatever else you like on salads of this sort. Obviously.

Chop up your veggies.

Warm up your pinto beans and corn. I use the microwave.

… and toss all your ingredients together in a way that looks aesthetically appealing.

Eat. There you go.. wasn’t that delicious, and healthy too?

I am amazed I did not add feta cheese or artichokes to this. Those are like sacred foods in my life, to be eaten at every meal. Maybe next time…

Anyone else found any good uses for those packets of ready-t0-eat salmon? Recipes where the titles are alliterations?
