Grilled Salmon With Greek Salad And Greek Yogurt Sauce Recipe

INGREDIENTS:
For the Salmon:

  • About 1.25lbs of Salmon (enough for 2 people)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

For the Salad:

  • 1 head romaine lettuce (or you can buy a lettuce mix bag), sliced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped (or one whole smaller cucumber)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

For the Sauce/Dressing:

  • 1 cup of non-fat plain Chobani yogurt
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons of finely chopped dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Drizzle a tablespoon of oil in a medium sized pan and heat. While your pan is heating, pat dry your salmon with a paper towel and sprinkle just a little salt and pepper on both sides of the salmon. Place the salmon into your heated pan and cook for about four minutes, flip, and then cook for roughly another four minutes. Remove salmon from the pan and let sit for a couple of minutes.
  2. While your salmon rests, prepare the salad and sauce. In a bowl, toss the lettuce, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, and feta cheese. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon juice and zest, dill, and a little salt and pepper to taste (no more than a 1/2 teaspoon).
  3. Plate the salad and then place the salmon on top. Drizzle the sauce on top and that will act as your dressing too (you can of course always add more sauce). Enjoy!
