Salmon Beet Salad with Cherry Dressing

This gathering of nutritious ingredients, great textures, and amicable flavour combinations (yes, cherries and salmon are a match made in foodie heaven!) looks impressive enough to flaunt on social media, making your friends wish they had come over for dinner. And most of the work for this salad is hands-off time.

Tip

You can swap out black rice for black (beluga) lentils or quinoa. Rainbow trout or arctic char are good stand-ins for salmon.

Frozen assets

When out of season, consider turning to frozen fruits such as cherries instead of their fresh counterparts. Harvested at peak ripeness and frozen quickly afterwards, they can actually be more nutrient dense than imported fresh versions. And subzero cherries are already pitted for you.
