Cookin’ Greens Designer Salmon & Potato Croquettes

 A croquette is a fancy name for a fried potato patty – here we are adding canned salmon, and our Athlete’s Mix, giving it somewhat of a fish cake familiarity with our nutrient packed greens.  

This recipe is paired with a creamy, water chestnut dressing.
