Although I do love to cook, there are definitely days when I want a break from cooking. Typically, I cook throughout the week and then we either go out or take out on the weekend. However, knowing how to cook and loving to eat good food has its downside sometimes. This past weekend, I was feeling lazy and we ordered takeout from a local Italian restaurant. My sonhas quite the palate for a 13-year old. He loves to eat and he loves good food, which makes him a very picky eater when it comes to takeout. So, when he tasted the pasta carbonara that he ordered and got a stomach ache after just a few bites (it was way too heavy on cream and butter), I resorted to reheating some leftover pasta with meat sauce. I could have saved myself a lot of money and aggravation if I had done that to begin with. Lesson learned.

The day after that fiasco, I was craving a Chopped Salmon Arugula Walnut Salad with Wasabi Dressing from a local restaurant. Feeling annoyed that I had spent more than I should have on a dinner that got thrown out the night before, I decided to make my own version of this salmon salad at home.

The dressing has no oil in it so it is extra light – just five ingredients, including fresh squeezed orange juice which adds brightness to this salad.

I made a few alterations from the original version I made four years ago. After doing the Daniel Plan , I have really cut back on eating carbs, so this version has no brown rice. I also switched up the salad by adding some napa cabbage which is naturally sweet and compliments the bitterness in the arugula.

The marinade for the salmon is delectable and I highly recommend spooning some of the extra marinade on top of the salmon before and after baking.

Give this Asian Salmon Arugula Napa Cabbage Mango Salad with Candied Walnuts a try – it’s filling enough as a main course salad, but actually very light.
