You've had a long morning of snorkeling, and you're craving some jerk (no, NOT the hirsute one in the Speedo on the chaise lounge next to yours), but you don't want a heavy meal that might cause belly pooch over your bikini bottom. Well, The Kitchen Tourists have just the thing for you: fiery hot jerk salmon, resting on a bed of fresh crisp tossed salad with an island twist, all topped with a sweet and tangy tropical vinaigrette. There, now you're satisfied, and you can still rock that hot little outfit you picked out for the evening waterside festivities. Team contributions that made this recipe what it is are as follows: Captain evelyn/athens = warm allspice and nutmeg, Ed&Theresa = fresh salmon, fluffernutter = kicky ginger, MA HIKER = spicy hot peppers, Mandy from Oz = crisp cilantro, Laffer = cooling papaya, ms.susan = fire-taming coconut milk, TansGram = filling beans, Tisme = zingy lime, tunasushi = crunchy cashews, Muffin Goddess = sweet mango Life is good, mon! Enjoy! (P.S. special thanks to Team Captain evelyn/athens!) NOTE: as noted by a reviewer (and myself, actually, after the fact), the dressing recipe makes way more than you'll need for this salad. The dressing is good on just about any kind of salad (I know, because I went through A LOT of salad trying to use up my batch of dressing lol), but if you don't eat salads very often, you may want to half or quarter the dressing part when you make this. :)
