We are launching a series of hearty summer salad recipes, like this healthy Hawaiian-Style Poke Bowl, to inspire you to get more greens into your diet, while also providing nutrient-rich, balanced meals that are easy to make and perfect for the warmer weather.
This healthy Hawaiian-Style Poke Bowl can be adapted to suit your needs and what’s available locally. We recommend using yellowtail or tuna, but of course salmon will work perfectly too, just make sure that your fish is as high-quality as possible. The fresher the better. This recipe serves two.
