Quick Meal: Miso Salmon Salad

This nutrient-dense salad is full of satisfying healthy omega-3 fatty acids and protein. The miso packs a flavor and probiotic punch. Bell peppers and lemon juice add antioxidants, and the greens are rich in folate (use spinach for a greater folate kick) and fiber. 

The best part? It takes about 10 minutes from fridge to fork.
