Seared Sockeye Salmon Salad with Figs and Honey Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

I love salmon on salads and this Seared Sockeye Salmon Salad with Figs and Honey Lemon Basil Vinaigrette is my new fave. Copper River Salmon sent me a few Prince William Sound Sockeye Salmon Filets to make two new recipes.  The first recipe is my Grilled Sockeye Salmon with Summer Stone Fruit Salsa. This salad is the second recipe.

I am a huge fan of salads year round, but they are especially good in the summer because summer produce is my favorite. I don’t mean to hate on winter produce, there is some I love such as persimmons, but the variety is much wider in summertime. I also love summertime for produce because that means my garden is full!

This year our fig tree is producing more than it ever has and it is almost 1o feet tall! We also planted way too many tomatoes this year, which my girls love. Especially my salmon loving 9 year old. She will go out to the garden to pick tomatoes for us and end up eating a few handfuls of the cherry tomatoes.

Gorgeous gorgeous fish. I was on Twitter a few weeks ago and I happened to see Copper River Salmon tweet about a salmon recipe contest between Chrissy Tieigen and LaBron James. They asked if anyone wanted to do a recipe contest with some of their salmon. I replied “sure!”. A few weeks later I was sent some gorgeous salmon and I came up with two recipes I think everyone will love. First up is this Grilled Sockeye Salmon with Summer Stone Fruit Salsa.
