Party Recipe: Salmon & Green Bean Salad

Everybody ready for the 4th? Menus planned? Last-minute grocery run ordered online for pick up on the way home?  Book and wine slushies prepped?

If you're having or attending a party, here's a pretty simple yet not overly common dish to throw together:

Salmon & Green Bean Salad


  • 1 6oz Salmon Filet Baked & Flaked
    • (if you don't like fish, substitute chopped ham or corned beef sliced into ribbons, or omit entirely)
  • 1 Steamer Bag of Green Beans, cut into bite sizes
    • (chopped, haricot verts, wax beans, any type is fine, it's the texture that matters so skip the canned beans) 
  • 4oz Dry or 2 cups cooked of Favorite Pasta, Cooked & Drained
    • (Orzo, bowtie, fusilli, dinosaurs, semolina, wheat, veggie, rice, whatever makes you happy)
  • 1/2 cup dried (pitted) cherries
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup (ish) of your favorite vinaigrette
  • Shaved asiago or parmesan for topping (optional)

Mix in large bowl. Top with shaved cheese. Can be served chilled or warm.
