I write a 5-ingredient recipe column for my fave gal Leah over on Freutcake! I was totally jazzed when she asked me to focus on a fast, healthy dinner recipe for spring because this Salmon & Yogurt Sauce recipe is a go-to in our house. Get ready for some (easy) clean eatin'!
Like I said to Leah's fab followers, I don't have outdoor space (#Brooklynproblems) otherwise I'd grill these babies. Nothing beats that toasty, roasty grill char. Bonus points for being super lean, too!
You only need 5
ingredients to pull off this easy weeknight dinner, so no excuses. Eat
like a champion. And make leftovers for lunch. You got this, girl!
5-INGREDIENT SALMON WITH YOGURT SAUCE
1 pound salmon, cut into 4 pieces
1 (6-oz) container plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 small English cucumber, chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
