1. ABC Salad

Our ABC Salad or our Avocado, Bacon and Chicken Salad is a dish that is to die for. Creamy avocado and crispy, delicious bacon star alongside seasoned and moist chicken in this chop salad. Topped with a Garlic and Herb Vinaigrette It is a soon to be favorite go-to dinner salad.
The key with a dish like this is everything in moderation. You dont have to say no to bacon but just use it sparingly. And go ahead and indulge with the good fats found in avocado.
We have also included a recipe to make your own Garlic and Herb Vinaigrette. By making your own salad dressing you know exactly what is going in it so you wont be surprised by mystery ingredients.

4. Aromatic Salmon Steamed In Foil


1-1/2 lb. wild salmon or Artic char fillet, in 1 piece, at room temperature
to taste: sea salt or kosher salt; freshly ground black pepper
enough extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
1 lemon, trimmed, cut into 1/4" slices
8 - 10 oil-cured olives or other small olives, optional
1 - 2 tbsp. salt-cured capers, soaked in water several minutes, drained


Heat oven to 500F. Tear off a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil (or a double layer of regular foil) large enough for salmon, + a border about 5" on all sides. Lay shiny-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Place salmon filet, skin side down, on foil. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle salmon liberally with olive oil, pour wine over it (turn up foil edges, if necessary, to trap liquid); arrange lemon slices in an over-lapping pattern down center. Scatter olives (if using) and capers around. Draw together long edges of foil and fold over several times, crimping tightly to prevent leakage, but leaving ample room for steam to circulate; close ends in same way. Cook foil packet 15 minutes. After removing it from oven, let it stand for a couple minutes before opening. With a spatula, gently slide salmon and other contents of packet onto a platter. Makes 4 servings. Seasoned couscous goes well with this
