So, next time you’re looking to wow your family or guests, give this recipe a try. It’s a summer delight that celebrates the best of the season’s bounty. Happy cooking!

Ingredients For the Honey Glazed Salmon:

•   4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
•   1/4 cup honey
•   2 tablespoons olive oil (+1 T for cooking)
•   2 tablespoons  lemon juice
•   Salt and pepper to taste

For the Strawberry Rhubarb Salad:

•   2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
•   1 cup pickled rhubarb, thinly sliced
•   4 cups of your favorite greens (we used thinly sliced romaine for a chopped salad feel!)
•   1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
•   1/4 cup chopped walnuts 
•   1/4 cup sliced radish
•    2 T sliced fresh basil

For the Dressing:

•   1/2 cup fresh raspberries
•   2 tablespoons red onion, finely minced
•   2 T honey
•   1 T Poppy seeds
•   1/2 c olive oil
•   2 T red vine vinegar
•   Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1.  Prepare the Honey Glazed Salmon:
•   In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, lemon juice, and 2 T of olive oil.
•   Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
•   Heat additional olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
•   Add the salmon fillets to the skillet, skin-side down if applicable, and cook for 3-4 minutes.
•   Flip the salmon fillets and pour the honey mixture over them.
•   Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes, spooning the glaze over the salmon, until the fish is flaky or reaches internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
•   Remove the salmon from the skillet and set aside.
2.  Prepare the Pickled Rhubarb:
•   If you haven’t pre-made pickled rhubarb, you can make a quick version by simmering 1 cup of thinly sliced rhubarb in 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt for 5 minutes. Let it cool before adding to the salad.
3.  Prepare the Strawberry Rhubarb Salad:
•   In a large bowl, combine the sliced strawberries, pickled rhubarb, and mixed greens.
•   Add the crumbled feta cheese and walnuts.
4.  Make the Dressing:
•   Blend dressing ingredients until smooth with either an immersion blender or food processor. 
5.  Assemble the Dish:
•   Divide the salad among four plates.
•   Top each salad with a honey-glazed salmon fillet.
•   Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

•   Salmon Alternatives: If you’re not a fan of salmon, this recipe works wonderfully with other fish like trout or even chicken breast.
•   Nuts and Cheese: Feel free to experiment with different nuts (like toasted almonds or pecans) and cheeses (like goat cheese or blue cheese) to suit your taste.
•   Extra Crunch: Add some sliced red onions or cucumbers for extra crunch and flavor.
•   Pickled Rhubarb: For a twist, try adding some spices to your pickling brine, such as a cinnamon stick, star anise, or mustard seeds, to add more depth to the flavor
