 This salmon avocado salad is a healthy salad recipe that's big on nutrients and flavor. It comes together easily with just a handful of ingredients!

INGREDIENTS:

Salmon Avocado Salad

  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 salmon filets
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Dressing

Lemon Vinaigrette (recipe below)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper. Add the salmon filets top side down and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Flip the salmon and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the salmon is mostly opaque, with just a smidge of softness still in the middle.
  3. Divide all of the other salad ingredients between two bowls, then place the cooked salmon on top.
  4. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and drizzle on top.

LISA'S TIPS

You can use the leftover dressing on future salads or as a marinade for meat. It's great on chicken as well!

To make this Whole30 just leave the sweetener out of the dressing.
