The salmon was good, but the potatoes were the bomb dot com!!0 Helpful
Loved it! So did my 5 and 3 year olds. They were asking for seconds. It was so easy to prepare and really was a meal you could impress guests with. I will definitely be making this again.0 Helpful
Loved the salmon! I pulled out this recipe to use with some salmon I defrosted last-minute, and while I didn't have olives on hand, the Greek salsa was still a tasty topping. Paired it with leftover herbed potato salad we had on hand, but I'm sure the oregano potatoes and kale salad would be tasty accompaniments for next time.0 Helpful
