Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Salmon

This salad is summer. Crisp romaine lettuce, strawberries bursting with flavor, ripe avocado, blue cheese and broiled salmon make for one refreshing salad. It was absolutely perfect for a warm summer evening. Plus I felt super healthy eating this for dinner.

I got this strawberry salad recipe from my Mom, and kicked it up with the avocado and sockeye salmon from Alaska, courtesy of the folks over at Copper River/Prince William Sound Marketing Association.

Once again I kept the salmon very simple, seasoned it with Lemon and Black Pepper Seasoning and then put it under the broiler. And once again, it was delicious.


For the salad:
1 salmon filet (approx. 8 to 10 oz)
lemon and black pepper seasoning
3 to 4 cups romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
1-1/2 to 2 cups strawberries, cleaned and chopped
1 avocado, pitted and sliced
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup blue cheese

For the dressing:
1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon white vinegar

Preheat broiler and place oven rack about 6" from heat source.

Season salmon generously with lemon and black pepper seasoning. Place salmon skin side down on baking sheet covered in foil and broil for 6 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together salad dressing ingredients, and toss with lettuce, strawberries, avocado, red onion and blue cheese.

Cut salmon into desired serving size pieces.

Serve salad in bowls and top with salmon.
