Grilled Salmon Over Summer Squash Salad

by | Updated: August 16th, 2017

Salads aren’t always made of leafy greens and shredded carrots. That would be boring, and you’re not boring. Actually, you’re rather colorful – and your plate should be, too. Luckily, eating healthy, whole-food-based meals makes for a beautiful display of nature’s rainbow without much additional effort. Case in point: grilled salmon over summer squash. Your eyes will see greens and yellows, pinks and reds. But what you’ll taste far surpasses the spectrum. There’s a good chance, you’ll never again look at salad in the same light.
