Smoked Salmon Fillet Salad with Bacon, Avocado and Balsamic Roasted Pumpkin

Standard
Smoked Salmon Fillet Salad with Bacon, Avocado and Balsamic Roasted Pumpkin

With a busy weekend behind us, filled with plenty of good food and eating, Sunday night’s dinner was meant to be a light one.

So salad was the winner. Salad is often something that people hear, and you automatically think, oh well that’s got to be healthy! But have you ever been eating really healthily, with lots of salads, and not lost weight? Perhaps it is because you were eating salads like this rip-snorter!!

At the end of the day, a salad is only going to help with weight loss if it is also low calorie, and if that is your aim, then this is not the salad for you… It can still be healthy with lots of great food… but totally caloriffic! 😀

I also don’t know that you can really have a recipe for a salad as such… Really it is just ingredients put together on a plate… Or maybe there is a salad secret I don’t know.

So here goes, my healthy sunday salad that turned into a delicious feast of all types of food goodness that probably don’t belong on a plate together, but were thoroughly enjoyed.

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Capsicum
  • Avocado

If you like, top with croutons and dressing (we used ceaser, but next time I will make my own)
