About Us

Our goal is to try and stick to a Mediterranean diet as best as we can. Of course we have slip ups and consume a little more of things we shouldn’t be eating. For the most part, we do our best to eat in moderation and try not to feel so guilty when we have that extra glass of wine or a little bit of a bigger piece of dessert. I mean you gotta live on the edge sometimes 🙂

We took inspiration from Mediterranean flavours and combined them all in this delicious salad. It’s filled with everything you need; vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and olive oil. We could have taken it one step further and done whole grain croutons instead of ciabatta but that was just a personal preference and we like the way they crisp up in the oven. By all means go for some whole grain bread instead.

While the salmon is baking, this gives you plenty of time to cut and prep all of your salad ingredients. It’s a perfect multi-task meal that all comes together in 15 minutes. It’s that simple! We decided to pair this salad with a nice light vinaigrette. A little goes a long way here. You really don’t need much to dress this salad up. It is already beautiful on it’s own and certainly looks restaurant worthy. We chose to incorporate dill flowers because they are beautiful to look at and smell delicious and of course are in season in the summer time. Regular dill would work just as nicely here if you can’t find the flowers. We sourced ours at our local grocery store located with all the other herbs and you can also find the flowers at local farmers markets as well.
