Wild Berry Caprese Salad with Chobani Raspberry Vinaigrette (serves 4)


  • 8 oz. Wild garden greens (spring mix)
  • 2 oz. Walnuts
  • 16 Raspberries
  • 16 Blackberries
  • 4 oz. Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Divide all ingredients out onto 4 plates and top with raspberry vinaigrette.
  • Chobani Raspberry Vinaigrette
  • 12 oz. Chobani raspberry yogurt
  • 8 Raspberries
  • 8 Blackberries
  • 1 oz. Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 oz. Orange juice
  • 1 tsp. Fresh basil

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend well (about 30 seconds).

Ginger Encrusted Salmon

  • 4-4 oz. salmon fillets
  • 1 T Crushed peppercorns
  • 2 tsp. Grated ginger
  • 1 oz. Olive oil
  • Cut fillet of salmon into 4-ounce pieces. Peel fresh ginger and place in blender with ½-ounce olive oil and blend until coarsely chopped. (Note: you can use a store-bought jar product, which has ginger chopped and ready to go.) Rub the salmon with the ginger and lightly dust with crushed peppercorns.

Place a small amount of the olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat, then sear the salmon for 15 seconds on both sides. Remove from pan and put on oven-ready cookie sheet.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake salmon for 8-10 minutes. Internal temperature of salmon should reach a minimum of 145 degrees. Be careful not to overcook, as salmon can quickly dry out.

Top with mango chutney and serve.

  • Pineapple (1 cup diced)
  • Red pepper (1/4 cup diced)
  • Green onion (1/4 cup diced)
