8 ounces white or whole wheat pasta (any shape; we recommend fusilli, fafalle, or gemelli)

4 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1 small red onion, diced

12 oz wild salmon (two 6 oz skinless-boneless portions), cooked (approx. 8 minutes) and flaked, or two 7.5 oz cans  of skinless-boneless sockeye salmon

4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside.

  • Trim asparagus and cut into 1-inch pieces.
