Day 685 : A midday salad

For brunch/lunch today I decided to make a protein packed salad full of all of my favorite things -- simple, satisfying, and filling but bright and aromatic. Made in under fifteen minutes, this was a quick meal.

So what was in the salad?

1/4 Watermelon Radish - diced finely
French Feta
Sauteed Shallots
Sesame Seeds
1/4 Gala Apple - diced finely
Homemade Vinaigrette -- EVOO, butternut squash seed oil, lemon juice, sherry vinegar, garlic aioli mustard

Toss the spinach into a bowl with a handful of diced watermelon radish, diced gala apple, steamed edamame, and finely diced broccoli florets for crunch. Cut up half of a shallot, toss in a pan with some sea salt and the sesame seeds and saute with EVOO over low heat till golden brown. While this is sauteing, add some cooked salmon to your greens then top with the cooked shallots and sesame seeds. Next up add a dollop of French Feta, creamier and less briney/salty than its Greek cousin, this will be the perfect creamy counterpart to your salad. Then add in your dressing and mix together. Delish, flavorful, light, green and chocked full of protein, how could you go wrong!
