The best salads have a lot of interest: different textures, different temperatures, the best quality ingredients and a lovely dressing, presentation and often a delicious source of protein. Asian salads with fresh herbs are inviting. Fresh mint, basil and cilantro add beauty; but when you taste them they also taste of life and risk and nourishment. Herbs have a voice …

Lemon-Ginger Salmon {Paleo, GAPS, AIP}

Megan Main Dishes, Whole Food Recipes 19 Comments

Fresh salmon doesn’t need a lot of lovin’. It’s so good with a simple preparation: lots of fat (my mom always used a generous amount of olive oil), sea salt and garlic. Served with sauteed spinach or a garden-ripened tomato salad, simplicity never tasted so good. In the past few years we’ve had a friend give us salmon who fishes …

We get all of the benefit that any veggie noodle provides; but this one magically appears just by baking the vegetable, no fancy …
