Salmon Salad with Pickled Beets

 This recipe features our Spiced Sweet Pickled Beets, these are pickled in a slightly sweet brine flavored with a touch of clove, allspice and pepper flake that adds a bit of zing to their earthy flavor.  This brine is the perfect balance for an easy vinaigrette.  We combine a bit of brine with a tablespoon of Lusty Monk Whole Grain Mustard and a spoonful of Cherry Plum Preserves which helps give the vinaigrette body and aids in emulsification with olive oil.  The result is a tasty sweet and sour dressing that goes perfectly with the salad components.

  

 This is the perfect salad at the end of winter to brighten up your day.  It's the best season for citrus fruit and the mini mandarin oranges that hit the markets this time of year are a staple in our house. 

 

We like to slice them into "supremes" by removing the peel and separating pith and skin.  This turns them into bright juicy little gems that pop with flavor and add a juicy contrast to the crunchy beets and peas.
When the Salmon is cooked, toss together your salad ingredients and plate up your meal!  Crumble a bit of goat cheese over plated salad and sprinkle with your favorite nuts, pumpkin or sunflower seeds for a bit of crunch.  Finish salmon by drizzling with a bit of vinaigrette.  Enjoy!
