Salmon Nicoise Salad

Last month, I had a few girlfriends over for Galentine's Day. I decided to make tomato basil soup followed by salmon nicoise salad. This was an easy meal that didn't require too much work. I am sure you could make the sauce ahead of time. It came out yummy and I will definitely be making again.

Getting the salmon ready
While I finished prepping, Yoshi entertained the ladies. We had a great time chatting and sipping wine.
