There is no one that loves salad more than Emily Richter our COO. She makes a version of this recipe weekly for her family and you should too!
“Just felt you should know – this is THE dressing in our house. I make a double batch of it every weekend and eat it on my salads all week. Every once in a while we make the whole salad – when it’s nice enough to grill – but this dressing, oh man. I even eat it on salmon burgers, grilled zucchini, as a dip for veggies – everything. And the combination of apple/blue cheese/radish in the salad is perfection. Thanks for such an easy, healthy, delicious recipe!” –Jessica
What is in this Salmon Salad?
Pan-seared salmon: whether you use leftover salmon or prepare salmon for this salad, pan-seared is the way to go. You get a crispy exterior and a flakey interior.
Greek yogurt dressing: some would say this Greek yogurt dressing is good on everything and we agree! Slather it on everything.
Fresh herbs: the fresh dill in this recipe takes the flavors to the next level.
Salmon Salad Variations + Substitutions
Feel free to prepare your salmon any way you’d like. Pan seared is our favorite but we don’t discriminate.
We highly suggest using romaine lettuce for this salad as many of the ingredients are heavy and would overpower softer green.
