day 15, color inspiration

January 19, 2010

I really should have taken a photo of dinner last night. It was beautiful. I made grilled wild salmon with cucumber-avocado salsa. The rich coral-orange hues of the salmon flesh provided an excellent backdrop for the monochromatic green salsa to “pop”. The fresh salsa combined very pale light green in the cucumbers and yellow green in the avocados to dark green flecks from the cilantro and green onions and bit of brightness from the lime zest. It was amazingly colorful for such a simple dish.  Here’s a color scheme I developed based on last night’s dinner and some help from some food sites to mimic what our dinner looked like.
