Chipotle Honey Salmon Taco Salad

If you know anything about Rubio’s, you know we like our salads big, full of eye-popping color and amazing flavors. And of course, a salad that’s packed with protein from seafood is even better. This hearty Chipotle Honey Salmon Taco Salad recipe completely hits the mark.

Seafood taco salad is a perfect solution when you can’t decide if you’re craving seafood, tacos, or salad. We love the rich flavor of wild salmon, but you can also substitute any fish or shrimp. This salad is easy to prepare and packed with protein and lots of good-for-you ingredients.

The chipotle peppers and honey in the vinaigrette are a sweet-smoky match made in heaven. The flavors are inspired by the honey-chipotle seasoned Wild-Caught Red Argentinian Shrimp featured on our menu this spring. You might want to make an extra batch and pour it on everything!
