Hearty Salmon & Kale Salad

Back from the holidays but already feeling the mid-winter slump? Consumed too many gluttonous calories and are hoping to get back into a healthy bod, while surviving these cold chills? 

Typically, during the dry colder days, I'm not really a meat & potatoes type of person (I dated a Brit who was huge on bangers & mash and that caused a roll in my tummy). However, admittedly, I can be a huge refined-carb consumer (holla croissants and cookies!) but knowing that these won't keep me lasting much for a couple hours, I've compiled this recipe of my fave hearty lunch/dinner meal, perfect for days where the temperatures surface below -10 degrees Celsius.

I love visiting the St. Lawrence Market for their fresh and organic supply of seasonal produce, berries, cheeses & selection of hor d'oeuvres, not to mention fresh dips like hummus, taramosalata, and pestos. I also love browsing the fish mongerers for any discounts - and low and behold for boxing week, these fresh and wild Pacific salmon tails were on sale for $12.99 a pound. (Typically, you'd find 2 frozen farm-raised salmon fillets weighing under a lb. for about $8.99 at most discount grocery supermarkets) so this was a great find.
