chipotle salmon, blueberry & corn chop salad

Life is pretty full & I’ve not posted in yonks. Here I am though, somewhat frazzled & frayed but making a very quick appearance nonetheless. And it’s blueberry season & I had to share with you a gorgeous chipotle salmon, blueberry & corn salad I made a few weeks ago. Reminiscent of Tex-Mex flavors, this salad has a lovely smoky, hot, lime & cilantro dressing, lots of veggies & it’s simple to throw together.

I’m getting ready to head home to Australia in a mere couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing my family, eating some good Aussie food & hopefully enjoy some cool winter weather. I’ve not been away from my hubby & the hairless duo for this long before & I have to say the anticipation is filling me with some angst. I will be kept very busy while I’m home but I hope to add a post or two of my Down Under adventures. Stay tuned!
