Salmon and Olive Sandwich

Kathryn says: Having just returned from a two-week vacation in Italy, I certainly miss the food. Thankfully, I can incorporate some of those delicious Italian flavors into my cooking…like olives.

Salmon and Olive Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. cottage cheese (I used Breakstone’s Live Active Lowfat Cottage Cheese)
  • a handful of olives, pitted (I used Kalamata olives)
  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach
  • medium-sized piece of salmon
  • 2 slices of bread (I used Publix Five Grain bread)
  • (optional) ketchup
Directions:
  1. Cook salmon to your liking. (I used leftover salmon from J’s Jerk Rub Salmon recipe. For a simpler salmon, just put your slab of fish on an ungreased frying pan and cook it on the stovetop on medium heat until golden brown and crispy.)
  2. Wash spinach and microwave it for about 45 seconds.
  3. Place salmon and spinach on bread. Top with cottage cheese and olives.
  4. Add ketchup if you’d like.

J’s nutrition note: Olives contain mono-unsaturated fats and salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, both of which are heart healthy.
