Salmon Spinach Salad

Okay I started this post and realized almost all the ingredients I used were left overs from two separate dinners! Well I’ll publish this post this with a bunch of “mini” recipes. Next time I’ll make a lemony garlicky vinaigrette.

Pesto Salmon
      1 piece of salmon
      spread homemade basil pesto and broil for 15 minutes

Roasted Asparagus and Potatoes
    (Dice potatoes into small pieces and trim asparagus. Drizzle with olive oil salt and pepper) lay on a foil covered baking sheet and put in oven with salmon, cook until done – 15 min.

Basil pesto
1 cup basil
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup olive oil
Chop basil, pine nuts, and garlic in a processor or blender until finely chopped. Add oil in a slow stream with processor running. Stir in parmesan.

Salad
Salmon
basil pesto
1/2 cup white beans
1/2 cup roasted asparagus
1/2 cup roasted potatoes
1 cup spinach, washed

Arrange spinach on plate. Top with potatoes, asparagus, white beans. Top with 1 T pesto and Salmon. (Add vinaigrette if you choose).
