I could eat this every night! That Greek salsa is to die for!
Very good. The Greek salsa is flavorful, the kale salad is simple and a nice change up from our typical arrugula with slivered almonds salad, and the addition of oregano to the potatoes makes them different from our usual roasted potatoes
This was delicious. I didn't think I'd like the "salsa" but I did. I used that same "salsa" recipe and mixed it with canned tuna for a lunch the next day.
This was good. A little saltier than I am used to. Loved the kale salad and potatoes.
Super tasty, but the salmon was pretty salty with the spice blend + all those olives on top.
This was so easy and tasty! Also healthy. Will definitely make again. I like that the salsa added flavor, but did not overpower the salmon.
