Use this “recipe” as a guide and swap in what you have on hand.
Any type of protein, greens, nuts/seeds, and fruit will be delicious!

  • Leftover Roast Salmon (cold or re-heated)
  • Handful of Arugula
  • Handful of Walnuts
  • Handful of Blueberries
  • Sliced Orange


  1. Toss the arugula with homemade dressing (see notes below)
  2. Add in walnuts, blueberries, and orange slices


I always make my own dressing! This is a great way to control your ingredients. The simplest dressing I make is olive oil whisked together with apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Here are a few tricks: 1. Dip a piece of arugula into the dressing to taste (not your finger or a spoon) and then adjust for seasoning. 2. Whisk up the dressing in the bottom of the bowl, then add in your ingredients. Don’t you love as little clean up as possible?
