Salmon Cakes on Baby Greens with Rice
I kinda used this recipe, but didn't have or want everything that was in it. In place of bread crumbs, I took a few handfuls of wheat thins type crackers and crunched them up with a wooden spoon. I used Red onion and skipped the dill, parsley and butter. Also, I always bake them because I don't like to get spattered by hot oil and, well, deep-fried food, not my thing.

A word about Massa Organics... They are awesome! They are a family farm near Chico, so your rice is from the USA! It is crunchy, sweet and amazing. And, at $4. for 2 pounds, a steal! Also, their Almond butter will make you drool! Seriously! I hide it. I think they sell at farmers markets, through SCLF in Santa Cruz, and by mail, so please check them out!
Garnished with lemon from a random tree. Total cost for this meal was just $7.58. We had dinner for 3 and 1 lunch the next day, so that's $1.97 per meal!
