Really fresh sallad mix and salmon was great0 Helpful
I think next time for the vegetarian version with mushrooms we plan to add a bit of parmesan cheese. Other than that it was very yummy!0 Helpful
Used tilapia because that's what we had. Good!0 Helpful
Really liked the salmon and queso fresco (who knew)! Didn't really notice the taste of the breading too much though and was not super impressed by the dressing, but over all good.0 Helpful
One of our favorites!! Everything was amazing. Used goat cheese for the salad instead because I had it on hand.0 Helpful
I love the crunchy-maple dijon coating on the salmon! It's sooooo good. I also love the idea of peaches in a salad. The peaches I bought were super sweet and just perfect. I didn't end up making the salad dressing but honestly, the salad was good without.0 Helpful
