Salmon Cake Salad

Remember that Not Ketchup I used in my Maize & Blue Chicken Salad for #10DaysofTailgate?

And remember how I said one of the things I had planned for my bottle of Blueberry White Pepper Not Ketchup was a salad dressing?

Well I did just that!

But I didn’t use it to top just any boring old salad. I used it to top Salmon Cakes (that were placed lovingly onto a salad bed)!

I apologize for the horrendous photograph – I’m still struggling with taking food photography in the new house at night.
