  • 1 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large avocado , peeled pitted and cut into slices or chopped
  • 4 cups mixed green lettuce chopped
  • 2 hard boiled eggs peeled and sliced
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 cucumber sliced in rounds or chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta or blue cheese , (leave out for paleo or Whole 30)

For the vinaigrette:

  • 3-4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sour cream , (leave out for paleo or Whole 30 & swap in mashed avocado instead)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pat salmon dry. Rub both sides with olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

To Grill Salmon:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 62 F. Use a fork to flake the cooked salmon into bite-sized pieces and set aside.

To Broil Salmon:

  1. Heat broiler and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil). Place salmon on pan and broil 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Assemble the salad:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Drizzle 1 teaspoon over the sliced avocado (to prevent from browning).
  2. In a large bowl, add the lettuce, then top with flaked salmon, eggs, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, cucumber and cheese. Drizzle with dressing right before serving.
