Grilled Salmon Citrus Salad

I'm always looking for new ways to serve salmon.  It's one of my absolute favorites!  This looks extremely easy...and it is.  I found this recipe in one of the guides that Jillian Michaels gives with her workout videos.  I don't usually follow the diets along with a workout, but all of her recipes were things I already eat, and put a little spin on what I usually do with it.  Plus, I don't think you can go wrong with salmon...ever.  


2 T olive oil
2T lemon juice
4 6-oz salmon steaks
8 c mixed greens
2 tomatoes quartered
1 yellow/orange pepper (I used red because that's what I had)
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a hothouse cucumber)

Here is what you do:

Cook salmon however you like it.  I grilled mine in a grill pan on the stove (about 3 minutes on each side).  Meanwhile arrange salad greens, tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumber on the 4 large salad plates.  Whisk together the olive oil and the lemon juice (you could also use lime juice).  Toss salad with the dressing.  Top each salad with a salmon filet.  YUM!

Serves 4

Hope you enjoy!
