Superfood Chopped Salad with Salmon & Creamy Garlic Dressing
“Curly kale forms the base of this salad, but you could use chard or spinach. To the greens, add a multitude of chopped veggies, such as broccoli, cabbage and carrots. Finish with rich salmon for protein and a drizzle of creamy yogurt dressing to bring it all together.”
1 pound salmon fillet
½ cup low-fat plain yogurt
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
2 teaspoons reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce
1 medium clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
8 cups chopped curly kale
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups chopped red cabbage
2 cups finely diced carrots
½ cup sunflower seeds, toasted
1Arrange rack in upper third of oven. Preheat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with foil.
2Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down. Broil, rotating the pan from front to back once, until the salmon is opaque in the center, 8 to 12 minutes. Cut into 4 portions.
3Meanwhile, whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Parmesan, parsley, chives, tamari (or soy sauce), garlic and pepper in a small bowl.
4Combine kale, broccoli, cabbage, carrots and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Add ¾ cup of the dressing and toss to coat. Divide the salad among 4 dinner plates and top each with a piece of salmon and about 1 tablespoon of the remaining dressing.
