avocado salmon salad

avocado salmon salad

Hey everyone,This avocado salmon salad is a keeper! it's loaded with all the best ingredients and juicy pan-seared salmon. The fresh lemon dressing is so easy and gives this salad amazing flavor. Let's start with the dressing. You'll need 3 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice and it is important to use fresh so start squeezing those lemons. Next add 3 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp of salt and 1/8 of a tsp of black pepper and last but not least, add two Tbsp of freshly chopped dill and stir everything together. Now the salmon is so quick and easy to prepare. You'll need 1 pound of salmon and I have that cut into four fillets. Season both sides with garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add half a Tbsp of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the salmon and cook about three to four minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the salmon to a plate then spoon about a tsp of the dressing over each fillet. Set those aside and let them cool to room temperature while you prepare the rest of your salad. I've washed, chopped and spun dry one medium head of romaine lettuce. Place that in a large salad bowl. Now slice up one English cucumber, add those to the salad bowl then thinly slice six radishes. Next, thinly slice and add half of a small red onion. Onto my favorite part - the avocado. We're using two avocados. Add all of your avocado to the salad bowl. Alright, it's time to finish this salad off and there's two ways to serve it. You can either break up the salmon and toss it with the rest of the salad or just serve it right over the top. It's a little bit fancier so that's what we're gonna do. Juicy salmon! Wow! And then the last step is drizzle generously with that dressing and I'm telling you this is gonna become your new favorite dressing. It's so easy but just so delicious. It smells good too. All right and use every bit of that dressing because it is so good. YUM! Okay, and I kind of jumped the gun and put the salmon in too early so I'm going to move it aside and give this salad a quick toss so that all the flavors can meld with that dressing. Okay, here we go, oh so much avocado! The best! Wow! This is one glamorous salad. It looks so impressive and it tastes even better. Mm-hmm, all right and we're all about big portions around here, you already know that. This is normally supposed to serve four as a side salad but tell you the truth, my husband and I can down this thing together. Whoops, making a mess.

 Mm-hmm okay. And then a big piece of salmon right over the top, so lovely. Mm-hmm okay, let's do this. That salmon is so juicy, it's the easiest way to cook it, just on the skillet. So quick and flavorful with that dressing over it. Okay, a little bit of everything... mmm-hmm. Everything works so well together. You've got that creamy avocado, crunchy cucumber and then the radishes give it this exciting pop of flavor. And if you don't like radishes, totally okay. You can substitute with tomatoes, that'll still be delicious but wow! This is delicious and the dressing is so fresh with the lemon juice and dill. This is an amazing salad!
