Alaskan Coastal Salad

Too many sweets this holiday season? Here's a low-calorie, sugar-free, and savory respite to the pile of cookies on your counter: Alaskan Coastal Salad.

This is a very simple salad: a curried mayonnaise (from scratch) brings together seafood and tomato slices.

Choose your own seafood--I used salmon because it was what I had in the freezer. To poach salmon, boil water, white wine (I used red), lemon slices, and bay leaves in a pan. Preheat the oven, and when hot, pour over a filet of salmon and bake for 20-30 minutes.

Homemade mayo: who knew it was as easy as blending egg yolk and oil?! I feel like that's a big childhood mystery revealed. It's fairly quick to make, and it's all from things in your fridge or cupboard. The particular sort of mayonnaise in this refreshing salad recipe is curried, which is a tasty--and unusual--experience.
