Smoked Salmon Salad with Millet

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

If I could eat smoked salmon a few times a week I think I would. However, it isn’t exactly cheap and it can be hard to find really good quality smoked salmon. I happened to be doing a Sam’s Club run and they had just received in fresh smoked salmon from Alaska. 2 packages quickly went in my cart!


One we enjoyed with some cheese, olives, nuts and wine and the other I was having a hard time figuring out what the heck to do with. While I was paging through cooking light I saw something that inspired me. Their version had wheat berries and no greens but I thought it was a fantastic idea.
