For The Salmon Salad

  • 4 salmon fillets with skin on
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 4 small zucchinis sliced lengthwise
  • 1 large cucumber peeled, sliced, and halved
  • 4 radishes thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • dill for garnishing
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Cucumber Dill Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 small cucumber peeled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Make the vinaigrette by combining all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth. Set aside.
  • Make the salad by tossing the spinach, zucchini, cucumber and radishes together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Add the avocado oil to a large, non-stick sauté pan on medium-high heat. Place the salmon skin side down and cook for 4-5 minutes. Leave the pan uncovered, but use a splatter guard to protect from hot oil splatters. Flip the salmon and cook for an additional minute.
  • Divide your salad mix between the plates and top with a piece of salmon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with dill and drizzle the cucumber dill vinaigrette on top.
