Scale

Ingredients

For the Salad:

  • 1 pound salmon -sprinkled with salt, pepper, paprika & lemon juice (optional)
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1.5 pounds baby yellow or red potatoes, quartered (I use Little Potato Company)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package cherry tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup sliced red onion
  • 8 cups salad greens (I used a mix of baby spinach and kale)

For the dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup oil (i used avocado oil)
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (or to taste)

Instructions

Drizzle quartered potatoes with a little oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. 

Place tomatoes on a second baking sheet. 

Place both in the oven and roast at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. 

Add green beans to the baking sheet with the tomatoes, stir the potatoes and return all to the oven for an additional 15 minutes. 

Remove both trays, place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until flakes easily with a fork. If you want your potatoes a little crispier you can leave them in a little longer while the salmon is cooking. 

While salmon is cooking, combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl. Whisk until well mixed. (If you like a lot of dressing, I’d double the dressing recipe). 

Place 2 cups greens in each bowl. Top each with 4 ounces of salmon. Add tomatoes, beans, potatoes, onions and a hard-boiled egg to each bowl. 

Serve with dressing!

Notes

To make this go faster you can roast the veggies ahead of time and just reheat to serve. You could also prep the salmon ahead of time. 

OR, you could pan sear the salmon while the veggies are roasting in the oven!
