This salad is riff off a classic that you’ve surely seen before. It’s been made with spinach, even with kale alone, but this time we bulked it up with even more nutrition from the raw chard. What makes this salad a little more special is the maple vinaigrette. The maple will really complement the heavy greens, walnuts and blue cheese.
To complete this meal and add some protein, top the salad with a nice piece of broiled salmon. However, for optimal nutrition make sure you purchase wild salmon and not farmed.
