Hey there! The weather is finally improving from constant grey blandness to wonderful sunny goodness (at least a little bit). That means long walks, bike rides, and hiking. It also means that the gardens are growing, and we are slowing switching from heavy, hearty soups, stews and braises to light, fresh seasonal produce.
We've been trying to eat healthier around here, but that doesn't always have to mean steamed veggies and lettuce. Healthy food can still be delicious and packed with flavour. Today, I've chosen to take a little bit of Thai inspiration with a beautiful cucumber salad with peanuts and a sweet chili glazed salmon.
This salad combines lovely fresh cucumbers with a bit of onion, chili and cilantro (or coriander for some of you). Top this fresh salad with a lovely vinaigrette and top with crunchy peanuts and you have a wonderful healthy snack, or a healthy salad side.
Ingredients and Instructions
To serve with your delicious salad, try a piece of broiled salmon. Simply marinade salmon in sweet chili sauce for an hour, and broil for approximately 7-10 minutes. Brush with more sweet chili sauce, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with a bit of lime.
This meal is a perfect for busy weeknights where you just don't feel like putting a bunch of effort into the kitchen. It's fairly quick, healthy, and has buckets of flavour. Print or share a direct link to the recipe here.
