Grilled Herbed Salmon Salad, simple salad for lunch or supper.
This Grilled Salmon Salad is simple to make and is so delicious. Don and I tag-teamed it for this lunch. He made the salmon and I made the salad.
We had plenty of fresh vegetables for the salad, and I love a good salad filled with romaine, broccoli, avocado, kale, and kalamata olives. So while Don grilled the salmon, I made the salad. It was scrumptious and not too filling.
We didn’t have any bread or other starches with the meal, so it was light, yet satisfying. Each piece of salmon was about 4-5 ounces. Filled with Omega3 fats, this salmon salad is not only delectable topped with Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette, it is good for you.
What’s Your Favorite Summer Menu?
Salad with grilled salmon is the perfect spring or summer meal in our house. We also like a good tomato sandwich when the tomatoes are ripe and beautiful. What’s yours?
What You Need
You will need a grill (or an indoor grill), knives, a cutting board, measuring cups and spoons. But what you really want is some great dinnerware and stemware, right?
