Salad season seems to be almost over, but there are salads that are perfect for the Fall. This soybean salad is one of them. Served with salmon, peas and potatoes it’s a perfect weeknight dinner when the weather is turning colder.
Soybeans are perfect as a base for a salad. Add cubed apple, a pesto dressing, pepper and salt to the soybeans and you have a flavorful, but fresh salad. The peas are cooked, the salmon is fried and so are the potato parts. All 3 are flavored with chive. Adding this together makes it a wholesome and flavorful meal. The recipe is from the cookbook Herfst Recepten from Emté. (Emté used to be a grocery store chain.)
Other recipes with salmon on the blog are Gravad Lax Recipe and Stars with Horseradish Cream Sauce and Salmon. Another perfect Fall salad on the blog is this Chicory with Egg Mimosa. Vietnamese Noodles with Lemongrass Chicken also has soybeans in it.
I changed one rather big thing to the original recipe and that is that I swapped dill dressing with pesto dressing. I still had a bottle of pesto dressing in my pantry and thought it would be a good combination. It luckily was. I left out radishes, since we don’t care that much for them.
