Green Goddess Salad with Simple Salmon

Sometimes all you need is a delicious, hearty salad. This Green Goddess salad is satisfying without weighing you down. The green goddess dressing is herbaceous. It's perfect for a spring afternoon or celebrating your bounty from your herb garden. The salmon on this salad is so simple yet tasty. I make the skin crispy so my salad has that texture it needs.

The green goddess dressing is so delicious I used it as a dip for french fries and fresh veggies and on sandwiches. I was sad when it ran out until I realized how easy it was to make and I just made more.

Making salad dressings from scratch is much easier than you may think. The video below has a super simple recipe for salad dressing. Watch and make both dressings. Which dressing do you like more?

Have you ever had beans in your salad. I love it. In this salad I use edamame for some added protein. Edamame is now easy to find in the frozen vegetable section. Steam them quickly and cool them down for a perfect snack or topping for a salad. I wanted to keep this salad as green as I could so I choose edamame as my bean. It never disappoints.
