|Summer Salad with Cumin-Crusted Salmon|
|Sorry--this is over 20 years old and I don't know the source!|
First heat a non-stick skillet, add the pine nuts and stir until toasty (about 5 minutes). In a large bowl, place all salad ingredients (reserve half of the cilantro and half of the pine nuts for garnish).
In a separate bowl, stir dressing ingredients together. In a bowl, combine cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Cut salmon into 8 strips and coat with spices. Grill (or sear in a non-stick skillet brushed with canola oil) until crusty.
Toss salad and dressing; divide on plates. Top with salmon and reserved cilantro and pine nuts.
Our kids don't help yet with cooking the fish, but they can:
- wash the lettuce
- open and drain the cans of beans
- wash and slice up the scallions (either with a knife or kitchen scissors)
- peel and cut up the orange
- measure out and pour the feta
- wash and chop the cilantro
- mince the garlic
That's a lot to keep little hands busy!
It's full of protein and fiber, can be served hot or cold, and it's delicious!
