Grilled Salmon Tips Salad + Giveaway Winner!

Congratulations to Vera Khule, the winner of the Paderno Veggie Spiralizer!  Also, a big thanks to everyone who entered!

This week I had salmon for dinner twice, surprise surprise.  However, I decided to get a little fancy shmancy and added thinly sliced pears (the fanciest fruit) and goat cheese (the fanciest cheese) to a regular old salad.  Since the best part of salmon is the crispy bits, I decided to cut my salmon into 1-2 inch cubes for extra goodness.  I used Trader Joe's Olive Oil and Lemon Juice to whip up a fast yet delicate dressing for the top.  Behold, a salad with a face lift.

P.S. Fall is just around the corner!  What would you like to see this season on Lemon Pantry?
