Salmon Patties and Mixed Green Salad

If you’re looking for a simple and crunchy brunch on the patio or a light and easy dinner menu, here’s one that’s going to be hard to beat — especially if you can pick up some fresh-from-the-field  lettuces and maybe a cucumber from the farmer’s market for the salad.  Packaged mixed greens  serves as a fine substitute for farm grown. 

One reason I like this recipe is because it is easy. For one thing, you can prepare the patties hours or even a day in advance and sauté  them just before you put the dish together.

Start by poaching and cooling some fresh salmon, although to be fair this recipe works just as well with leftover or even canned salmon. As you sauté the salmon mixture,   blend together a fresh lemon vinaigrette salad dressing with Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard and just five other ingredients.

When the salmon is golden and the lettuces arranged on the plates or in the bowls, add the salad dressing, and serve with a fresh baguette and butter. Light, crunchy yet with a complex mix of flavors, you’ll find Salmon  Patties and Mixed Green  Salad may very well become a favorite dinner menu every month.

The best recipes are often caught up in your web of memories. For me this dish reminds me of rushing cold salmon streams in Oregon and a lovely French vinaigrette that I once enjoyed in New Orleans. What will it remind you of?
