This salmon veggie bowl is as nutritious as it is tasty. Grilled salmon combined with hearty greens, sautéed zucchini, and crisp red cabbage makes one healthy hearty meal with layers of flavor. The bitter almost smoky char from grilling the salmon combined with its mild flavor is sublime when paired with the subtle sweetness of golden zucchini, bitter greens and the deep earthy taste of red cabbage. And let’s not overlook the array of vitamins and minerals as well as protein and good fat. There’s nothing not to like about this bowl.
