Salmon Salad

  • 1 lb salmon fillets
  • 1.5 c water
  • .5 lemons sliced
  • 1 cucumbers
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 5 c romaine lettuce chopped
  • .75 c celery chopped

Dill vinaigrette


  • In a medium saucepan, combine the salmon, water, and lemon and bring to a boil over medium heat. Immediately reduce the heat to a simmer and poach salmon for 5-7 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet. Once salmon flakes easily, transfer it to a cutting board to cool while you prepare the salad and vinaigrette. Discard the remaining ingredients in the saucepan.
  • Peel cucumber on all sides using a vegetable peeler into long, flat ribbons until you reach the seed center.
  • Place cucumber ribbons on a paper towel and sprinkle with pinch sea salt to sweat the cucumber and extract moisture. After 10 minutes, pat the cucumber dry with additional paper towels.
  • Whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
  • In a large serving bowl, combine the lettuce, celery and cucumber ribbons with the vinaigrette. Gently toss in the flaked poached salmon. Serve with lemon slices on the side.
