Elegant and Easy Valentine’s Day Salmon Dinner

If you’re looking to prepare something special for your Valentine’s Day Dinner, consider salmon.

It’s a little pricey which probably means it’s something you don’t eat every day. That makes it special. It’s super heart-healthy, and what spells love better than that? Add a green salad topped with an olive oil-based salad dressing and your Valentine’s heart will smile. So will yours. To add color, prepare the DaVita® Gourmet Green Bean recipe. Or not. To save time, just serve low-sodium green beans from a can. Canned low-sodium green beans taste fresh and clean, and you’ll never miss the salt.   For dessert try Angel Strawberry Delight because on a day like this, you need something pretty and red and having the word “angel” in the title is just a bonus.

I like to buy frozen salmon that’s packed in the individual shrink-wrapped plastic. That way, if I change my mind and don’t fix it, I don’t have to worry about it going bad. Prepackaged salad is a time saver. For the dressing, try a recipe from, or to save time just use your favorite low-sodium brand salad dressing from the store.
