Balsamic glaze takes grilled salmon up a notch. This classy recipe, pairs nicely with white wine and veggies. 

It’s simple and you can use the dressing on salads, veggies or even chicken throughout the week.  Recipes that have multiple uses are always a win, if you ask me. Speaking of salad dressings, really any of them work as salmon marinades when baking or grilling it! Get creative! Wrap it all up in foil and it’s as easy as that.

Tip: Try not to go overboard with high calorie sauces and remember to always read the label if you’re not making it homemade.
