Black & Bleu Salmon Salad is a simple, yet delicious salad recipe! A bed of fresh lettuce mix is topped with juicy blackberries, salty, creamy bleu cheese crumbles, candied nuts and perfectly grilled salmon. Toss it all up with a homemade balsamic dressing and dig in!
So, I actually have a confession to make along with this salad post. I’m not a huge fan of making salads at home! However, when I do make a homemade salad, it is always something similar to this Black & Bleu Salmon Salad! I love how versatile it can be. If you don’t have salmon, you can use chicken. If you want it as a quick lunch or side dish, opt out of a protein/meat topping and you still have a perfect salad to munch on! Heck, if you don’t have time to whip up a quick batch of homemade dressing, use your favorite bottled dressing! Versatile recipes like this one are great to have on hand so that you can customize it to any situation.
I love how fresh and vibrant this salad is. All the ingredients work together to serve up the perfect bite. If you’ve never made a homemade dressing before, do not fear! It is simple and you will end up asking yourself why you’ve never done it before. Not only does this salad make a great main dish or side dish, but it is a perfect meal prep option! Simply leave the dressing on the side until you are ready to eat.
PS: my Mom is the real MVP – look at those salad tossing pictures she helped me capture!
