Living in a cooler state like Wisconsin means that I spend most of the year in my house, bundled up and on the couch. This totally isn’t the lifestyle that I like to live so you can imagine my excitement every year when the warmer temperatures hit. And by warmer I mean at least 45 degrees Fahrenheit. I find myself wanting to be outside on walks and runs and just tinkering around in my yard. I also find myself grilling nonstop and making this delicious Sriracha Lime Salmon, the perfect combination of spicy and sweet!
I was so excited when I found out that Litehouse was launching two new flavors to their dressing line: Sriracha Lime and Mango Habanero. I instantly starting marinating everything in sight with these sweet/spicy combinations. Talk about summer inspiration in a bottle! I have even been turning up the heat on my salads with the Mango Habanero flavor. If you love the sweet and spicy flavors, I encourage you to run out and grab a bottle of each.
My Sriracha Lime Salmon and Cucumber Salad is perfect for an evening meal with your family on the patio. It screams summer and the tangy cucumber salad cools the heat from the salmon. If you have a mandolin you can julienne the cucumber lengthwise to achieve the spiralized salad in the images. You can also use a spiralizer to achieve a similar effect.
This recipe is really a quick one to prepare and is low in calories. You can feel good about feeding it to your family knowing that it is a balanced, low-calorie meal. If you’re not a big salmon fan, try out the marinade on chicken breasts!
