I find that a salad is a great lunch for me. It’s something that’s fresh, delicious and very easy to prepare. I change up my salads by adding different protein to them. Sometimes I’ll use pine nuts and a couple hard boiled eggs, other times I’ll use shredded chicken, or even make a taco salad with ground beef. Recently, however, I discovered tangerine dressing, and I fell in love. I brush it over the top of the salmon fillet before cooking it. It gives it this wonderful, light glaze that adds a wonderful citrus and honey flavor to the salmon. The tangerine dressing is perfect if you make it yourself, but if you’re in a pinch, look for Panera Bread’s Tangerine Honey Dressing. It’s nearly as tasty, and you don’t have to make it.
