Crunchy Chopped Salad with Grilled Salmon


Ingredients for salad: 

  • 4 cups baby spinach or baby bibb lettuce, chopped

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1 cup zucchini, chopped

  • 1 cup hearts of palm, diced

  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped

  • 1/2 cup black olives, chopped

  • 1/2 cup radishes, sliced thin


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Place in bowls to serve and top with grilled fish or shrimp and drizzle with Tonnato dressing (recipe below).

Ingredients for Tonnato Salad Dressing: 

  • 1 (7-ounce) can tuna packed in olive oil, drained

  • 2 - 3 anchovies packed in olive oil, drained

  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained

  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise

  • Celtic salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Add water if needed or lemon juice if you want a tarter dressing.

  • Make sure you taste the dressing and adjust the flavors to suite your tastes.

  • I like adding a tablespoon of Dijon Mustard and use my Herb Salt instead of plain Celtic salt for added depth.
