    Orange Salmon Salad (Paleo, Whole30)


    I love cooking with oranges, especially naval orange. It lends a burst of citrusy freshness with a hint of natural sweetness to the dish which often makes me want to go back for more. Honestly, the salad dressing is out of this world. I would drink it straight up if I have no self-control. At some point I was questioning if I’m eating another portion of greens because it was an excuse to have more dressing. 

    The marinade for the fish could not be any simpler. Orange, garlic, and thyme go so well together! I’m sure it’ll work well for other kinds of fish or even chicken. Use wild-caught salmon if possible. Yes, it makes a difference. If you have time, package up the fish in the foil and let it sit out in the chiller for the flavours to marry. The aluminium wrapped fish would be perfect for the grill as well!
