GREEK SALMON SALAD
Bright and colorful salads are the most fun to make and eat. Fresh vegetables, like cucumber, tomatoes, red onion and Romaine lettuce toss with sliced olives, feta cheese and quick homemade salad dressing makes for a delicious and healthy lunch. But add a juicy pan-seared salmon and you have a complete meal. This Greek Salmon Salad is healthy, delicious and satisfying. You could also use my Parmesan Crusted Salmon that is baked in the oven or air fryer. This salmon salad gives my Avocado Tuna Salad a run for its money. They are both my favorite lately and both so easy to make!
HOW TO MAKE GREEK SALMON SALAD?
- Start by preparing the vegetables: chop cucumber, tomatoes, slice onion and olives. Chop lettuce.
- Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat up olive oil in a pan (cast iron is my recommendation), then sear on both sides until cooked. Remove from pan and let sit for 5 minutes.
- In a small jar, mix together dressing ingredients. Toss salad with dressing. Add feta cheese. Serve with salmon.
GREEK SALAD DRESSING:
In a small jar, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, honey, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, pepper and Dijon mustard. Whisk well and pour over salad. Toss to coat.
CAN I MAKE THIS SALAD AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes, this salad can be made and store for up to 2 days in the fridge. I do recommend keeping the dressing separate and drizzle over each serving.
