Salmon Chopped Salad with Homemade Honey Mustard

Holy cow, there is a HEAT WAVE heading our way!!  Over the next few days, Philadelphia is about to get hit with temperatures around 100 degrees for the first time this summer.  We don’t know about you, but when it is that hot outside, the last thing we want to be doing is cranking up the heat in the kitchen.  So here is a super simple idea to help keep you cool and satisfied the next time you get hit with a scorcher of a day!

-1/4 head of lettuce, chopped
-2 Tbs chopped tomato
-2 Tbs chopped onion
-2 Tbs chopped cucumber
-2 Tbs chopped red pepper
-2 Tbs feta cheese crumbles
-1 hard boiled egg, chopped
-3 oz grilled salmon

Honey Mustard Dressing:
-1 Tbs Dijon mustard
-1 Tbs whole grain mustard
-1 Tbs honey
-1/4 cup olive oil

The salad is almost too easy to explain.  Lay a bed of lettuce and top with the chopped ingredients, each in their own little section.  We used the ingredients listed above but feel free to sub in your favorite veggies.  To make it a little more hearty for dinnertime, we suggest topping it with grilled salmon, but chicken or steak would also be great!

To make the dressing, use a fork to whisk together 1 Tbs of Dijon mustard, 1 Tbs of whole grain mustard, and 1 Tbs of honey.  Once they are well combined, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and continue to whisk until a smooth dressing forms.
