I’ve been waiting for the sun for quite some time now. It finally came out today. I am grateful for the sun because It gives inspiration & happiness in ways which nothing materialistic can give us. I mean, I can’t think of much that can make my 8 am Physical Chemistry class better. Coffee does make it somewhat tolerable, but the sun makes each tick of the second hand move that much faster.
My lecture this morning went by incredibly fast, maybe, because my walk to class was breathe taking.
It wasn’t warm out today, but the sun made me crave something light, summery & refreshing.
I decided that a Smoked Salmon & Pear salad would match with the weather nicely. I accompanied this salad with a Orange-Lemon dressing .
I can’t describe how satisfying this salad is. There are only a few ingredients & they all pair perfectly together. The pear is crisp & wonderful while the salmon is delicate and light. I added some finely sliced red onions to give a bit of sharpness to the end of each bite.
What You Will Need
70 g smoked salmon
1/4 cup red onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup spinach
1/4 cup crisp pears, thinly sliced (I used apple pears)
Orange- Lemon Dressing
Juice of 1 orange
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sugar
On plate, lay evenly the spinach, red onions, pears & smoked salmon. Next, in a bowl,combine all the dressing ingredients together and whisk until smooth. Drizzle on the dressing just before serving.
Rain is gloom & sunshine is happiness. Thanks for coming out today.
