On: Rosemary Salmon and Southwest Quinoa Salad

Salmon is one of my favorite meals, and it is an added bonus that it is packed with nutrients. As I prepare for a race this weekend, I will be making several quinoa salads, and have included my favorite recipe with the salmon this evening- a perfect pair!

Ingredients and Preparations:


1 lb. Salmon

3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

3 Cloves of Garlic

2 sprigs of Rosemary

Preparation: lay salmon skin side down onto a large piece of tinfoil. Fold edges to create a small box. Combine olive oil and garlic in a small bowl, drizzle over salmon. Lay rosemary over the top, and wrap foil over the top of the small box to enclose it.

Grill over medium heat for 15 minutes. 

Southwest Quinoa Salad:

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

4 tbs. applecider vinegar

2 tbs. cumin

1/3 cup chopped cilantro

In a medium bowl, combine quinoa, corn, cilantro, and jalepeno. In a small bowl combine EVOO, applecider vinegar, and cumin. Pour over quinoa mixture and mix thoroughly.
