Salmon Teriyaki Bowls

It’s time for my Bowl of the Month!! I’m making Salmon Teriyaki Bowls on Meal Time Monday and they are fresh, colorful, and so, so good. Don’t like salmon? Sub your favorite protein or meat alternative—shrimp, chicken, tofu, or mushrooms would be delicious!! Brush it with teriyaki, add some brown rice and diced fruit/veggies, and finish it off with my Carrot Ginger dressing, a recipe I’ve been trying to recreate for years.

This one’s going into my regular rotation. The dressing is perfection. Swap out the protein or try it on greens instead of rice for an even lighter option. I have zero doubt that you’ll love it.
