How to Make a Macro-friendly Salmon Romesco Salad:

This salmon romesco salad is easy to throw together, especially if you have made your soy ginger sockeye salmon and Romesco sauce ahead of time. But don’t worry, if you haven’t happened to make things ahead of time it will still be equally delicious. 

There’s also a bit of chopping for this salad. I love chopping by hand, especially when I am using my Nakano knives on a dreamy cutting board. But, I also love the alligator chopper for dicing things up too. For this salmon romesco salad, I’d probably use both! Knives to chop up my butter lettuce, basil, and avocado. And then the alligator chopper for dicing the cucumber.

Building Your Salmon Romesco Salad

Pile your chopped butter lettuce in a large bowl. Top butter lettuce with cooked salmon. Warm or cold salmon works for me! Then add diced cucumber, corn, edamame, avocado, shaved parmesan, fresh basil, and Romesco sauce

Your salmon romesco salad is going to look beautiful after adding all of the yummy ingredients so take a minute to look at it before giving it a good toss. Sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions:

If you need a little more dressing on the salmon romesco salad, I always love to supplement with a fresh, slightly sweet white balsamic vinegar. My favorites are peach, lemon, and grapefruit infused. You can find these types of vinegar at specialty olive oil shops, or on Amazon. I get mine at Baker and Olive! Once you have your salmon romesco salad dressed the way you like, enjoy.

  1. How much Salmon and Romesco sauce did you use for the macros posted? I know you can tweak it to fit your individual macros, but sometimes it is just easier to do it the same because logging is easier…lol
