Author Notes: I’ve been Pinning salad recipe after salad recipe over the past few weeks in an attempt to get myself hyped up about that so-called resolution season we’ve all been talking up — and lucky for me, thanks to some inspiration from Joy the Baker, one finally stuck! I loved the citrusy accent of the grapefruit and the extra pop of the edamame in this one, plus the extra dose of protein that the salmon provides.Liz
