Cedar Planked Grilled Salmon Salad is so refreshing this time of year, and a cinch to make using Cedar Bay Grilling Company's pre-seasoned cedar planked salmon.
Cedar Bay Grilling Company takes all the guess work out of preparation when it comes to seasoning and grilling planked salmon. Cedar Bay salmon products come pre-seasoned and ready to be placed directly into the oven or onto the BBQ with little-to-no preparation required.
This recipe is my third and final submission for the Blogger Recipe Challenge, entered in the Grilling Category.
About the Challenge
This recipe was created for the inaugural Cedar Bay Grilling Blogger Recipe Challenge and open to 50 bloggers. I was honored to be chosen to create up to three recipes and compete for a chance to win up to $1500.00.
Listed below are the three categories within the challenge:
One Grilling Category Winner: $500.00 Cash Prize
One Entree Category Winner: $500.00 Cash Prize
One Entertaining / Appetizer Category Winner: $500.00 Cash Prize
Bloggers received two free samples for testing and recipe creation: Sugar & Spice 24 oz Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon and one 24 oz Applewood with Orange & Ginger Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon. Both flavors are absolutely delicious and a breeze to make.
The flaky texture of the Orange Ginger Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon is accentuated by the addition of grilled Hawaiian fruits, avocado and toasted macadamia nuts; bringing a delicious texture along with a smokey flavor of summer to the dish.
