Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the salmon burgers

  • Pat the salmon burgers dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the salmon burgers and cook, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
While the burgers cook, start preparing the lettuce and the salad.

2

Prep the lettuce; make the fall fruit salad

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; remove 4 [8] of the largest outer leaves for the burgers and save the remaining lettuce for another use.
  • Core and cut the pear and apple into 1-inch pieces.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Cut the pomegranate in half crosswise.
Fill a large bowl with water and set the bowl in the sink. Hold a pomegranate half, cut side down, over the bowl. Using a wooden spoon, beat the outside of the fruit to knock the seeds into the water. Repeat with the other pomegranate half. Skim off any pith that floats to the surface. Drain the seeds.
In a medium bowl, toss together the pear, apple, almonds, pomegranate seeds, and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt.

Serve

Transfer the fruit salad and the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top the lettuce with the salmon burgers and spoon 1 tablespoon “creamy” Dijon vinaigrette on each burger. Serve the remaining vinaigrette on the side.
