The combination of flavours in this salmon & nectarine salad is the perfect lunch or light dinner this Spring-Summer season. This year’s stone fruit is amazing! Paired perfectly with protein rich salmon, delicate salad greens, fresh mint and the crunch of toasted walnuts.
From a nutritionist’s perspective this salad provides a good balance of protein (from salmon and walnuts), healthy fats (from salmon, extra virgin olive oil and walnuts) and whole food carbohydrates (from the sweet nectarines). You can learn how to make delicious and balanced, easy recipe like this salmon & nectarine salad in my Online Program, Nourish From The Inside out.
This recipe celebrates whole food ingredients. It is also gluten free and dairy free friendly, with no added sugar. I used Kumbia nectarines to make this salad, grown by Australian family farmers.
This would also be a fantastic salad for entertaining! One I know your guests would love. Pour over the salad dressing just prior to serving to keep it fresh.
