Spring Greens with Salmon and Apricot-Ginger Vinaigrette

This crunchy combination of spring greens, baby spinach, red cabbage, and snow peas is powered up with salmon and topped with a sweet apricot-ginger vinaigrette.

Ingredients

Servings  4   Serving Size   2 cups salad and 2 tablespoons dressing

Apricot-Ginger Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup all-fruit apricot spread
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated, peeled gingerroot
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Salad

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens (spring mix preferred), torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen snow peas, trimmed and halved diagonally if fresh, thawed if frozen
  • 1 7.1-ounce vacuum-sealed pouch pink salmon

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. In a food processor or blender, process all the vinaigrette ingredients until smooth.
  2. Put the salad ingredients except the salmon on a serving platter. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad. Toss gently. Crumble the salmon on top. Serve immediately for peak flavor and texture.

Tip: Freezing gingerroot keeps it fresher longer and makes it easier to peel and mince. Wrap the unpeeled root in aluminum foil and freeze it for up to six months. When you’re ready to use it, remove the root from the freezer and peel it with a paring knife or vegetable peeler. Grate it with a rasp grater. Or, you can slice the frozen root and use a rotary grater to mince a large quantity in no time.
