Broth & Salsa Flavored Salmon Burgers with Turmeric Quinoa #BlockPartyHero #ad

Have you noticed that those people who seem to practice little acts of kindness never quite realize how big those little acts are?

This past Saturday I went to my neighborhood Sam’s Club as I had heard they were having a Block Party featuring Swanson Broth and Pace Organic Salsa. However, I wasn’t quite sure exactly when the block party was to start. So, when I got there and couldn’t find any evidence of it, a lady at customer service suggested I go to a room in the back of the store and inquire about the details of the block party from someone there.


When I got to there, a lady called Lynn introduced herself to me and after a spot of chit-chat, she informed me that they hadn’t quite finished making the Quinoa and Brown Rice with Pace Organic Salsa and Swanson Broth (the true #blockpartyhero of the day) yet. So, I told her I’d wonder around and come find her and her assistant when I smelled their dish.


Sam’s Club is filled with quite an interesting array of goods and I found myself wondering around aimlessly, trying to talk myself out of getting ALL the bulk produce. When I was wondering down the book aisle, I heard someone yell my name. And, when I turned around, I found Lynn with a ginormous stainless steel bowl containing the salsa and broth flavored Quinoa and Brown Rice walking towards me.

Apparently, she had been walking around looking for me and when she got to me, she looked solemnly at me and said, “I had to find you before I started setting the food out as I didn’t want you not to have any!” I was so taken by her kind gesture, but she just brushed it off as if it was nothing!

So, this post is to say thanks again to Lynn and all of y’all like her, for y’alls brushed-off kind gestures.

That little act of kindness put a ginormous smile on my face all day.

When I got home from Sam’s Club, armed with Swanson Broth and Pace Organic Salsa, I was still smiling. And, figured I would use the broth and salsa and The truRoots Quinoa I had, to whip up some Broth & Salsa Flavored Salmon Burgers with Turmeric Quinoa for my daughter who was spending her Saturday morning taking The ACT.

I find that Swanson broth enhances the flavor and adds major juicy-ness to my salmon burgers so I make sure to keep some on hand even in the summer months. As I was in the mood for experimenting, I figured I’d add some Salsa to the burgers as well and see how they turned out. Pace Organic Medium Salsa is now Certified USDA Organic so you can know what you are feeding your family when you break out the chips and dip.

I paired these flavor-packed Salmon Burgers with some Turmeric Quinoa, drizzled with pistachios. I used Certified USDA Organic truRoots Quinoa which is a non-GMO, gluten-free, ancient, whole grain.

  11. Now THIS is the way to get me to enjoy quinoa 🙂 Pinned to my Fish & Seafood board….

  12. I recently had quinoa and really loved it (never had before) so I’m totally into trying this version and although I don’t like salmon, I do like salmon cakes! Go figure!

  13. O love that you’re making it easy peasy with canned salmon!! (totally eating right now…just not in burger form!)

  14. That pilaf sounds incredible! We eat a lot of salmon burgers in the summer…but I’ve never tried forming them at home…I’lll have to try this!

  21. What a fun story! Lynn sounds like a really great person, and I’m glad you got to chat with her at the block party. As far as wandering around Sam’s Club…yeah, I would’ve gotten into trouble. I’ve been dropping hints to Laura that we need the tent they have on sale there right now. And in true Sam’s Club fashion, it’s a huge tent! We don’t camp. We don’t like to camp. But we do need a tent in the backyard for Robbie! Hah! Seriously, though, I’m digging these salmon burgers. They’ve been on my list to make for a while now, and I love serving them with quinoa. Oh, and I hope the ACT went well for lil Shashi! 🙂

Your burgers look oh so good and flavorful. I’ll be checking my mailbox regularly for that invite, thanks for thinking of me. 🙂 (It’s the little things.) Have a beautiful week my friend. xo

  24. Those burgers look fantastic! Salsa is such a great little condiment. It has so much flavour and can really add a nice burst of flavour into anything. Also love the look of your turmeric quinoa.
