  • 4 cups spinach
  • 1 cup sliced snap peas
  • 1 cup sliced radishes
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) fillets salmon
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, To Taste


  • Step 1

    Place spinach and prepared veggies in a big bowl.

  • Step 2

    Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-low for about 3 minutes. Add avocado oil. Take the salmon out of the package and blot dry with a towel, drizzle with avocado oil and brush to cover. Season with salt.

  • Step 3

    Increase the heat to medium-high. Place the salmon fillet skin side down in the pan and press down firmly with a spatula so it comes into contact with the surface of the hot pan. Cook the salmon for about 3 minutes. Carefully turn salmon fillet over and cook for another 5 minutes. Salmon is cooked when it flakes easily. Remove salmon from pan and flake over the prepared salad.

  • Step 4

    To make the simple lemon dressing, whisk olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper together, adjusting to taste. Pour salad dressing over salad and enjoy!
