Carmela's Salad Redux . . .

The original Carmela's Salad is still my favorite, but here's proof that a good thing can be modified in many ways, and continue to work beautifully . . . or, in this case, deliciously . . .


This time, the pièce de resistance is salmon, baked simply in the oven with a little lemon juice . . .  Steam some asparagus spears and red potatoes . . . boil some eggs . . .


Make a lemon vinaigrette, or stick to olive oil and vinegar . . .


Keep it simple.  As Ina Garten would say, simple food has the most style . . .

Yummy and beautiful. My boys love all those ingredients, so I'll have to try this out sometime.

There is something about Ina Garten that I'm drawn to. She has the whole New England air about her ("fab-blu-less") and still I think she is the cat's pajamas. This salad looks and sounds delicious.
