This recipe is so quick and easy, that it would be silly to not give it a try. I am embarrassed to even claim that this is a “recipe”, but it is a delicious combination that you may not have thought to try. You could try to make your own salmon burgers, but why bother when Trader Joe’s makes them so deliciously and chock full of salmon?! For this recipe, I used their burgers, but feel free to experiment with your own or any other pre-made variety.
After my WOD this morning, I knew that I needed to have a healthy and filling lunch before heading off to a graduation party where I will be faced with the temptation of many delicious Portuguese foods that don’t fit into my diet. I stopped by Trader Joe’s on my Vespa ride home and started roaming the aisles looking for options. Their premium salmon burgers caught my eye, and after a little more browsing, I decided I would top it with bruschetta made from ripe tomatoes on the vine.
