So fresh and so yum yum!
The most delish Mediterranean Salmon bowls! 💃🏽 Lemon greek marinated Salmon, loaded with quinoa, cute cucumber rolls, tomatoes, fresh herbs, tzatziki and feta cheese.
It may be mid-august and the fall-loving basic b that I am is wishing for the cooler season BUT it’s still SUMMER YO! As much as my soul wants to kick summer to the curb, I simply can’t ignore the sunshine and the bounty of fresh produce at our local farmer’s markets- which truthfully, I really do love and will miss. So, we’re giving it a final push on summer dishes before it’s time to welcome ghosts, gourds and goblins. Let’s jump to this recipe before I start typing out an ode to Fall…
In full transparency, this was a sponsored post with Krinos on Instagram, but I felt like it deserved a permanent home here on the blog.
Mediterranean Salmon Bowls
Three words to describe this bowl:
F R E S H: Local fresh ingredients! I love having wild salmon but you can replace it with any other fish if you’d prefer.
P O W E R F U L L: Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acid, Protein and all kinds of vitamins, this is one heck on a Mediterranean power bowl!
and M E D I T E R R A N E A N – Y
Ok, so that last one isn’t a real word, but Mediterranean flavours are beyond delish. Nothing truly screams a summer dish more than feeling like you’re being transported to Greece with their fresh and delish flavours! P.s. as I typed that last sentence, I totally wished that could legit happen. Taking a bite into food and instantly being transported to a country that inspired those flavours. That would be the dream! I digress…Back to the Mediterranean Salmon Bowls.
