Description

These Greek Salmon Salad Bowls are loaded with fresh and healthy ingredients and easy to make in less than 30 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound salmon filets
  • fine sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 ounces fresh arugula
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • half of an English cucumber, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • half of a small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup roasted pepitas
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 batch Everyday Dressing*
  • 1 avocado, sliced or diced

Instructions

  1. Cook the salmon. Season the salmon with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick sauté pan. Place the salmon filets flesh-side down and cook undisturbed for about 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Flip and cook the other side for about 2-4 more minutes, until the salmon reaches your desired level of doneness and flakes easily with a fork. (Cooking time will also depend on the thickness of the salmon.) Transfer salmon to a clean plate and set aside.
  2. Toss. Combine the arugula, bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, pepitas, feta and cooked salmon in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle evenly with the dressing, then gently toss to combine.
  3. Serve. Serve immediately, topped with the avocado plus extra feta and/or pepitas, for garnish.

Notes

Dressing: I recommend mixing an extra 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano into the dressing for this recipe.
