Salmon with Strawberry Salsa

It feels great to be back in the kitchen! Having eaten out for pretty much three weeks straight, eating at home has been that much better. I wanted to make some good ole' salmon to get us back on track and when I came across this recipe I thought that it was screaming summer and I was definitely intrigued by the flavor combination - strawberry, scallion and tomato? As the other bloggers have also said, I wasn't too sure how all of these flavors would come together but it was quite the pleasant surprise. In fact, it was absolutely delicious and such a quick and easy weeknight meal idea.
