This month’s Recipe Redux challenge began with quite a fun little game! In honor of closing out 2016, we were instructed to grab the nearest cookbook and turn to page 16, 21, 216 or a combo of 2-0-1-6 and redux that recipe.

Disclosure: I received the Sabra Spreads mentioned in this post. Opinions stated are my own.
While the sabra spread contest ended a few weeks ago, my use of the spreads is still going strong. I’ve used the garlic herb and cracked pepper on eggs and roasted potatoes but, I had to share this sandwich recipe, too. Last week on “National Kale Day” (yeah, I celebrate as many of those food days as I can), after a tough workout, I decided to throw the grilled salmon that I had marinated in the Sabra spread on some sprouted grain bread with steamed kale, sprouts, onion tomato and more of the spread. It was amazing! It’s also a lot easier than you think to make delicious salmon on a weekday! Hopefully I can motivate you to cook up this great source of recovery protein and anti-inflammatory omega-3’s and throw it on some sprouted grain bread to refuel those muscles!
The veggies and sprouts are an easy way to give your sandwich a nice crunch, and make it more colorful. Remember, you eat with your eyes first and should be eating a rainbow! I used Lancaster Food Co. bread this time around but, you can read more about my bread recommendations here. Continue reading →
