Mimosa Poached Salmon Salad is a quick, yet elegant dish that is sure to impress! Serve it up at brunch (with a mimosa on the side, of course) or with fresh crusty bread for a light and refreshing summer meal.
First off, thank you to everyone who read, commented, or shared my last post on IBS. I’m not usually one for talking about my feelings, so writing such a personal blog post was definitely not an easy task. But this is a topic that I’m extremely passionate about and believe needs to be spoken about more openly, so it was worth it. I just hope you know how much all of your support means to me!
Now, back to the food…
Have you ever found yourself so distracted by the thought of a recipe that you just NEED to make it in order to ever have hopes of focusing on anything else ever again?
No? Just me? Okay.
Well anyways, that’s how this beautiful creation came to be.
Earlier this week, I was just sitting around minding my own business and working on my thesis project, when out of the blue… BAM. Mimosa Poached Salmon Salad.
I don’t know where it came from or how it got there – I’ve never had anything even remotely close this recipe before in my life. Perhaps it was all the mimosa recipes I’ve been seeing on social media lately in preparation for Mother’s day. Or the fact that National Mimosa Day is right around the corner (yes, that’s a thing.. and it’s May 16th – google it). Or maybeeee it was the bottomless mimosas I had at brunch last weekend. We’ll never know. All I know is that once Mimosa Poached Salmon set up camp at the front of my brain, it was there to stay.
I tried to shake it and continue working, but the image of salmon bathing in champagne and orange juice was just too much to handle. Soo, a few days later and here we are.

Hi friends! Long time, no chat.
Before I dive into today’s post, let me just apologize for my unintentionally intentional month-long hiatus (double apologies for the fact that this hiatus just so happened to coincide with National Nutrition Month… #dietitianfail). Life came at me real hard and real fast this past month and rather than add yet another stressor to the pile, I decided to take a step back and put the ol’ blog (err young blog..?) on the back burner.
But let me tell you, it feels good to be back. I have so much to tell you! Starting with a long overdue update on my ongoing digestive issues and my recent transition to the low FODMAP diet. But let’s save all that serious mumbo-jumbo for another day, shall we?
First, coffee. (more…)
This Roasted Autumn Harvest Salad is hearty enough to stand on its own, but also makes for a colorful side salad. Loaded with roasted delicata squash, beets and apples, it’s the perfect way to showcase flavorful fall produce!
What do you consider the “start” of winter?
I mean, I know technicallllly the calendar says that winter doesn’t start until December 21st, but let’s be real, does anyone actually go by that?
If not, where do we draw the line? Does “winter” start the first day of December? The day after Thanksgiving? The first snowfall? (That last one may be problematic for you Southern folk.. or those living in the unpredictable climate of Upstate New York) Winter in October? Yeah, no thanks. (more…)
August is National Peach Month! Pay tribute to the summertime staple with this protein-packed Caramelized Peach & Goat Cheese Salad…
Do you have a favorite season? For me, it’s always been summer. There is just something about this season that fills my heart with allllll the warm fuzzies (although it’s possible that the 90+ degree heat may also have something to do with that…) (more…)
Yeah, yeah. Go ahead and make your dietitian jokes – I’ll wait. But I’m serious. I’m one of those people who actually craves a good salad (and ice cream and pizza from time to time, but that’s beside the point…) (more…)
