Summer is not over for me yet, and fresh meals like these Grilled Salmon Power Blend Nourish Bowls are everything I need! Imagine a decadent bowl of power blend (shredded Brussel sprouts, Napa cabbage, kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots and kale), add to that a rainbow of sweet seasonal fruits, grilled salmon and a chia seed orange juice dressing. Every bite is a load of super food goodness, crunch, sweet, juicy, rich salmon and bright zesty orange dressing! Quick, easy and satisfying.
Today’s fresh, bright and luscious post is sponsored by friends at MANN’S Veggies Made Easy —suppliers of the best, freshest and tastiest veggies ever! I’m super excited to share with you some of my favorite products from MANN’S and all the endless ways I use them!
I’m absolutely having the craziest Summer..and by no means am I complaining! It seems like girls are a bit older now and can tolerate more fun 🙂 No more strict bed times, feeding times, plenty of extra clothes everywhere we go, snacks and special foods.. it’s like freedom 😀 So I’ve probably abused that freedom and signed up for way too many activities, trips and events than I can handle lol kids though seem to be handling it just fine.
I love Summer and its’ fresh vibrant food! I’m one of those who wish for Summer to last forever! So I know the Fall is beautiful and comforting, and every season is special, but summer has this energy that’s almost invigorating. It reminds of me of Miami and the beautiful memories I have of that place 🙂 If you’re living there right now, I ENVY you! And also, make yourself a grilled salmon nourish bowl all year long!!
Let’s talk a bit about this grilled salmon and power blend nourish bowl. First of all, we’ll start with the grilled salmon. I chose grilling for today’s recipe because what a perfect excuse to fire up the BBQ in this gorgeous weather, but for the record, you may bake, broil or sear pan the salmon too. Another thing I want to mention about grilled salmon is, use a really high temperature grill so that your fish doesn’t stick. And finally, grilling salmon with its’ skin on is always a bonus to avoiding sticking and breaking apart the fillet of fish. Start grilling skin side down first, and if you’re not a skin person then just remove the skin once the grilled salmon is ready.
Since my nourish bowls are loaded with flavor and crunch, I keep my grilled salmon with just salt, pepper, fresh thyme and olive oil. A squirt of lemon juice once it’s done at the end, and that all you need 🙂 The core of these nourish bowls is certainly the Power Blend slaw from Mann’s Veggies, which you can locate easily online.
A super blend of perfectly fresh, shredded Brussel sprouts, Napa Cabbage, Kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots and kale. Absolutely amazing! To sweeten those up I throw in my favorite Summer rainbow fruits, use your favorites here rather than sticking exactly to the recipe. I’ve added fresh strawberries, blueberries, mango, peaches, avocados, pomegranate arils and apples. Now zest things up with a dressing made of olive oil, scallions, chia seeds, mustard, orange juice and toss everything together!
These grilled salmon bowls are like a treat! Even my friend who isn’t a salad person at all.. like at all, LOVED these bowls. She came over during the photo shoot and probably hoped for a chocolate treat, but instead found a huge colourful bowl of salad with grilled salmon. At first she said listen no offence I’m only eating the salmon, and I told her to go ahead. Accidentally she got a bite of the sweet fruits, crunchy Power Blend and actually LIKED that taste. She continued. I watched.
When she was done, she said this is actually good! And her reasoning is, the crunch is addictive and the fruits added so much sweetness that made even salad taste so good. No matter how you think of it, it’s absolutely true. These grilled salmon bowls are crazy delicious and a definitely MUST make recipe! Don’t forget to tag me while you’re enjoying the deliciousness 🙂
Before I let you go, I need to share a few other favorite slaws to enjoy: this Italian Strawberry Balsamic Broccoli Slaw—a fabulous twist on your average broccoli slaw! And dare to make this Veggie Pizza On the Grill with Garlic Blue Cheese Sauce and you won’t go back to regular pizza anytime soon! 🙂 Make them all and ENJOY 🙂
