Summer is here y’all! In the south summer means heat and humidity. After a ninety degree day with ninety percent humidity, the thought of turning on the oven in the farmhouse is not a very appealing one (even to someone like me who loves to cook).
My Salmon, Asparagus, and Dill Orzo Salad with Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette is a summer meal life saver and a family favorite during the hot months. Not only can the salmon be grilled, but this salad is best eaten at room temperature. No need to worry about keeping it warm or chilling it. This hearty salad is a casual, laid back, healthy, and delicious meal that I think you and your family will love. (The leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day too!)
This salad pairs perfectly with a light, crisp white wine and some grilled french bread lightly brushed with olive oil.
In my opinion Salmon, Asparagus, and Dill Orzo Salad with Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette is the perfect summer meal. I think my family will agree and I hope you will too! Bon appetite.
