Grilled Salmon & Cucumber, Fresh Herb & Feta Salad

Grilled Salmon & Cucumber, Fresh Herb & Feta Salad

From: EatingWell.com, October 2019

Grilled salmon always plays well with a fresh, bright summertime salad. The tender, flaky salmon counters the crunchy cucumber salad while the rich fillet balances the saltiness of feta and the tang of the salad dressing. Serve the salmon warm or cold (your choice!) and pair the meal with a slice of crusty bread and a glass of wine.

  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). Pat fish dry with paper towels; sprinkle evenly with seasoning blend and ½ teaspoon of the salt. Place fish, flat sides up, on oiled grates; grill, covered, 4 minutes. Using a spatula, turn fish 90 degrees; grill, covered, 1 minute. Turn fish over; grill, covered, until desired degree of doneness, 3 to 4 minutes for medium. Remove from grill; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  2. Whisk together onion, oil, lemon juice, Dijon and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil and dill; toss to coat. Divide salad mixture evenly among 4 plates; top with fish, cheese and pistachios.
