Salmon Salad Wraps

May 24, 2010

May is almost over, and so is National Salad Month. Is time flying by or what? Last week I made the most delicious “salad” that was actually a wrap, but if you’re throwing a bunch of salad ingredients into a cabbage leaf, well then, you have yourself a salad, by my standards.

These were delish. Healthy, too. But I can’t take all of the credit on this one. The inspiration and recipe came from Whole Wheat Or Bust with the awesome Salmon Wrap with Dill Sauce. I made this dish early last week, and again on Saturday, for my parents (which I was visiting for the weekend).

Since the original recipe called for mayo and sour cream, and I avoid eating these items, I opted for a revised version:

Salmon Salad Wraps

  • Wild caught, fresh salmon fillet (amount varied to how many eating)
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (may use any yogurt sub here)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • capers (optional)
  • salt and pepper

Sprinkle salmon with salt, pepper, lemon juice (or lemon slices), fresh or dried rosemary, paprika, and any other spices, and wrap in foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes (or until fish is tender, cooked, and flakes).

Pre-cooked, but ready.

Meanwhile, mix in a bowl, the remaining ingredients. This will be your sauce. Feel free to add to this… I added chopped pickles to mine, just for fun.

Here I made one dill sauce my version, and one sauce with the original recipe. Both were great!

To create your wrap, wash a head of cabbage (green or red), and make cuts in the bottom of the cabbage head, circling the stem. Gently, and carefully, pull one leaf from the stem base, creating a whole leaf “cup.”

When the cabbage leafs, salmon, and sauce are ready, start your dish. Wrap as you please:

Such a great meal. Awesome job with this creation and thank you Whole Wheat Or Bust!

So, what did you do this weekend??? I mentioned before, I travel the three hours north to visit my parents. My mom and I had a Business Launch for our new business and it went great! I love doing events and creating a stir. This event went fantastically and I gained some new Preferred Customers and met some new amazing people in the business. (Did I mention I love my new job??? Not to mention the $10,000 bonus I will be getting at the end of August! WOW!)

While I was home, I snapped some pictures of my parents’ backyard. They have worked so hard to create the dream backyard (and garden!!!). I do miss living there, solely for the fruits and veggies they produce. Take a look!

I love Sweet Peas! They smell amazing!

Planted so far: Tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, beans, bell peppers, carrots, onions, chives, rosemary, mint, and more (I just can’t remember all the rest). Not to mention the orchids, day lillies, roses, poppies, sweet peas, geraniums, etc., etc., etc.

And Cherries!!!! (and unpictured plums, nectarines, lemons, wild black berries, pomegranates, and tangerines.)

Uh, yes, I am jealous. And I know another garden I’m jealous of… Katie’s parents rock the garden scene, too!

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Question: What’s your favorite fruit or veggie?? What do you miss about your parents’ house?

Yum, I love salmon! Your parent’s garden is absolutely beautiful! I have a hard time picking a fave fruit, but my favorites are bananas, apples, strawberries, and raspberries probably. Squash and sweet potatoes for veggies. I currently live with my parents, so I have nothing to miss :), but what I like about living with them is almost nightly homecooked meals and getting my laundry done for me!

Umm…jealous of your paren’ts house and backyard! What a beautiful place they have created….

Your wrap looks delicious…I’m not a huge fan of salmon, so I would probably replace it with another fish or chicken, but yummy!
