Greek Salmon Salad

Simple Clean and Homemade I Greek Salmon Salad

May is my favorite time to start making big salads. Vegetables start to come from local farms which makes the salad taste better. I love to make a big salad and serve it with seared salmon. Now is the perfect time to do that because fresh salmon is in season. I love Copper River Salmon.

I think the most important part of making a good salad is the salad dressing. If I don’t like the dressing, I am less likely to eat salad. I really like the spice combination in this Greek style dressing. It is zesty.

This is a delicious dressing for pasta salad, too. It is versatile and stores well in the refrigerator.

      I recently saw a Greek salmon salad recipe on “Ten Dollar Dinners.” I liked the idea, but I felt like her recipe could use some tweaking. I love your addition of the artichoke hearts – I’m a sucker for anything with artichokes. And your presentation is sooo much prettier than what Melissa d’Arabian put together on the show.

      Thank you! That is such a kind thing to say. I like to make salad dressings and keep them in the fridge so that I have a few to choose from. If you ever go to Willow on Camp Horne Road, they have a fantastic salmon salad at lunch.
