Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Make pickled red onions, the lemon vinaigrette dressing and bake your sweet potato croutons.
  2. Sear salmon. Season salmon filets with sea salt and ground pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet (a cast-iron works great) over medium-high heat. Place salmon in pan, skin side up for about 4 minutes or until the flesh is golden brown. Turn and cook until salmon is medium-rare, about 4 more minutes.
  3. In a salad bowl, toss greens with sweet potato croutons, pickled red onions, feta and pepitas. Divide between 2 plates. Top salad with salmon and avocado. Then drizzle with the lemon vinaigrette. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
