The Main Ingredient Of Delicious Dishes: Salmonberry

Salmonberry is a wild berry found in the Northwest United States that packs a powerful punch of flavor and nutrition. It can be used to make all kinds of delicious dishes, from salads to desserts. Here are five dishes where Salmonberry is the main ingredient and star of the show.

1. Salmonberry Bruschetta – This classic Italian appetizer is given a Pacific Northwest twist with the addition of fresh Salmonberries. Start by toasting slices of baguette and top with a mixture of chopped tomatoes, red onions, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and Salmonberries. Sprinkle with feta cheese, fresh basil, and olive oil for a bright and delicious starter.

2. Salmonberry Salad – Nothing says summer like a refreshing salad. Combine mixed greens with toasted almonds, diced cucumber and tomatoes, chopped celery, and crumbled goat cheese. Toss with a simple dressing of olive oil, white wine vinegar, and honey. Top with Salmonberries for a sweet crunch.

3. Salmonberry Salsa – Spice up your next taco night with this zesty twist on the classic salsa recipe. Start by roasting diced tomatoes, red onions, jalapenos, garlic, and cilantro in a hot oven until softened. Let cool slightly and then stir in fresh Salmonberries. Serve with tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream for a crowd-pleasing side dish.

4. Salmonberry Crumble – End the meal on a sweet note with this classic dessert. Start by mixing together rolled oats, butter, brown sugar, flour, and salt until crumbly. Top a baking dish of sliced pears, apples, and Salmonberries with the crumble topping and bake until golden brown and bubbly. Serve warm topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an unforgettable dessert.

5. Grilled Salmonberry Skewers – Fire up the grill and get ready to make some tasty kebabs.
