Carrot and Ginger on Salmon

Warm weather around our farm means outdoor eating! I love sitting at our picnic table watching the sun sink lower in the sky with a glass of wine and the goats grazing in the foreground.

As the spring weather warms I crave light and refreshing meals. Bright flavors, crisp veggies and tender salads are some of my favorites. We also eat a lot of fish in the summer. I love how fast a filet of fish cooks on the grill or sautéed in a pan, and I can quickly get back outside without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Something about seafood conjures up images of the beach, clam bakes and days of nautical dreaming.

One of my favorite ways to eat fish, is to cook it simply, and top it with a really flavorful fruit or veggie salad.

This carrot and ginger salad is wonderful as a stand alone side dish or slaw, but also goes wonderfully with salmon, one of the best fish (in my opinion) for sweet accompaniments. The creamy citrus and ginger dressing and the crunchy apples and carrots are a wonderful contrast to the warm flaky fish.
