    Basmati Salad Coconut Crusted Salmon

    This salad is bursting with tropical flavour, brightened up with a floral coconut-lime dressing and sweet pineapple. Plus, it’s topped with omega-3-packed salmon. You’ll love this quick salad stunner in the heat of summer, though it can be made all year long with its season-less ingredients.
