Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus + Fennel Salad

I’m not even sure if this salad tastes good, but it sure looks pretty!  But honestly, with homemade blood orange vinaigrette and Laura Siefke’s honey bourbon salmon glaze, how could it not be tasty?

Using a jar with a lid is a super easy way to shake up a quick vinaigrette!
