This is a unique twist using brown rice pasta instead of ordinary wheat. This brightly colored tasty salad has wild Alaskan salmon, cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh spinach, and a variety of other veggies. It is so easy to make. Chill in fridge and then serve!!!

I added extra vegetables using kale instead of spinach and chopped tomatoes rather than cherry tomatoes. This is a great tasting salad. Read More

Made this recipe exactly as written (well I did leave out the jalapenos) for a pontoon boat get-together. Several people asked for the recipe and even the kids were eating it! Plus it's so healthy. It's the perfect hot weather delicious healthy meal. I'll be making this all summer. Read More
