Looking for a delicious, colorful salad to brighten up your dinner? This sesame salmon salad is just the thing. It has all the Asian flavor but doesn’t use soy for those of you who are avoiding it.

Instead, I used liquid aminos. You can find it in your local grocery store, usually in the health foods section or it can be easily bought online. I find the taste is incredibly like regular soy sauce and I use it quite often in my cooking. You could also use coconut aminos.

If you are wanting to keep this for work lunches, it’s a great idea – just keep the dressing separate otherwise it will get the lettuce leaves all soggy.
