  1. Hi Adel,
    Most of the recipes that in in the different categories for salads would be raw; here's a link to the Salad Recipes Index Page

  2. Hi, do you have recipe that mostly raw/ half raw? Thanks

  3. Glad you enjoying the blog. If you enter salmon into the search bar there are lots of recipes for roasted or pan-grilled salmon.

  4. Hi Kalyn! I love your website! You have helped me in the past while I was on south beach. Quick question, I live in an apartment and do not have access to a grill. What is the best way to cook salmon? Thank you! Jacki

  5. Jolene, I have never heard of that product. (I can't publish your comment with the product name because then it becomes an ad for their product, and that encourages people to leave other similar comments.)
