  • 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

  • 4 cups mixed green lettuce chopped

  • 4 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 cup leftover cooked corn kernels leave out for keto / paleo / Whole30
  • 1/2 cup cooked or canned black beans rinsed and dried (leave out for keto / paleo / Whole30)

For the vinaigrette:


  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. Add all the ingredients for the vinaigrette into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, add the lettuce and toss with half of the vinaigrette.

    Top with flaked salmon, eggs, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, corn, black beans, cucumber, cheese and tortilla chips. Drizzle with dressing right before serving.
