Juice Box Salmon w/Creamy Russian Dressing
Several months ago my friend Jen sent me an email around 9 p.m. at night. She had just made this juice box salmon for dinner and loved it so much she was convinced her kids would gobble it up.
She was right. Her kid’s loved it. I needed to make this dish.
Just the name alone intrigued me.
‘Juice Box Salmon’ is salmon poached in a juice box of lemonade served with a side of russian dressing.
Its the perfect balance of sweet & tangy. The Russian dressing makes for the perfect dipping sauce.
