Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salad with Yogurt/Dill Dressing
This easy, luscious salad recipe comes to us from famed Seattle chef Tom Douglas.
Tom co-produced a compelling, engaging film – called "The Breach” – about the wonders of wild Pacific salmon, and the struggle to save them, and Chef Douglas also appears in the documentary.
We urge you to watch the trailer, and then rent The Breach on iTunes or buy the DVD, all of which you can do by clicking here.
