Quinoa Salmon Panzanella Salad

This version of Italian panzanella salad gets a protein and healthy fat boost courtesy of the addition of buttery salmon, while crispy quinoa offers a fun and more nutritious alternative to bread cubes. And the basil dressing adds bright flavour to each forkful.

For enhanced basil flavour, add some whole leaves to salad greens. You can also make the salad with rainbow trout or arctic char. When in season, consider including sliced local peaches.
