Is there anything that tastes as awesome after weeks of indulgence over the holiday season than a bright fresh clementine?? Whether or not you’re embarking on an official plan to lighten your footsteps, it doesn’t hurt to have a little palette cleansing run of healthier items in the menu rotation.
For New Year’s Day, I made our favorite mustard roasted salmon dish. For the side salad, rather than get all fussy with paring down navel oranges a la Martha Stewart, I kept things super easy and substituted the clementines that were sitting on our counter. I peeled one per person at the table and tossed them in with the greens.
The next day I couldn’t stop thinking about the combo so I took the leftovers and made a jumbo salad for my lunch. I think the salmon is delicious cold out of the fridge, but you could so easily heat it up in the microwave before chunking it up as your topping.
Then on Day 2: Turn the leftovers into a cold salmon and citrus salad.
