2 weekends ago Team Fit Foodie had a little retreat at Linley’s family’s river house on the St. Croix. If you’re from Minnesota, you know there is a debate as to which side of the St. Croix is better, Wisco or Minnesota. Being a Wisconsin girl, I’d have to vote East side on this one :P

Being away from city life for an entire weekend was really nice. The river house (what we call it) is nestled away in the bluffs of the river and is absolutely gorgeous. If you follow FitFoodieFinds on snapchat, you may have seen some glimpses of the property! Lin and I decided to make our Fit Foodie Retreat a mixture of work and play…insert recipe creation…and this salad.

We picked up an amazing piece of salmon from the local IGA- Ptacek’s. I love love love IGAs, especially because they are run locally. They always have THE best local meat and produce selection. YES PALEASE.
