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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Divide all of the other salad ingredients between two bowls, then place the cooked salmon on top.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and drizzle on top.

Notes

  • 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.
