These Lemon Pepper Salmon and Zucchini Noodle Salad Cups are fresh and light and loaded with the flavors of summer!
We just had our first 90° day of the year here in Minnesota this past week. With the recent rains adding humidity to the mix, the air was heavy and not exactly lovely. But our family was on our way out the door for our first little getaway of the summer…heading to a much cooler area of the state on the beautiful North Shore. The usual summer crowd had not yet arrived north of Duluth, making it feel like we had the place to ourselves. We hiked the trails and swam (in the indoor pool at Lutsen Resort, not in icy Lake Superior!). And wandered and shopped our way around the quaintness of Grand Marais, enjoying wonderful meals of fresh local trout and whitefish and plenty of nutty Minnesota wild rice. We were active, yet incredibly relaxed. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the first official week of school being out for summer. For a few photos from our weekend, see here, here, here, here, and here.
The temps have come down again since our return, but I know those 90-degree days will be back. And for those summer days when the temperatures rise higher than normal, I like to make sure our fridge is stocked with all kinds of good, cool salad fixings. These Lemon Pepper Salmon and Zucchini Noodle Salad Cups promise to deliver tasty fresh goodness all summer long.
