To make the grilled salmon salad, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each), skin on
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 8 cups mixed greens
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh dill for garnish

For the lemon-dill dressing, you will need:

  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth and creamy. Adjust the seasoning to your taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the salad, preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and brush with some olive oil. Grill for about 4 minutes per side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and let rest for a few minutes.

In a large salad bowl, toss the mixed greens with some of the dressing. Divide among four plates or bowls. Top with cucumber slices, tomato halves, avocado slices, and feta cheese. Place a salmon fillet on each salad and garnish with some fresh dill. Serve with more dressing on the side if desired.
