Ingredients

FOR THE DRESSING (yields ¾ cup, nutrition information based on 2 tablespoons per serving):

  • 1 ripe avocado peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup non-fat plain Greek-style yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons water for thinning as necessary

FOR THE SALAD:

  • 3 slices center-cut bacon cooked and chopped
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • cup diced peeled avocado
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 2 hard-cooked large eggs chilled and quartered
  • 1 ½ ounces blue cheese crumbled
  • 4 Gorton's Signature Seasoned Salmon Fillets about 3.5 ounces each, cooked according to package instructions

Instructions

  • For the dressing, puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add 1 -2 tablespoons of water (or more) until the dressing reaches desired consistency. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the salad:

  • Divide spinach and lettuce evenly among four serving bowls or plates. Top each salad with equal amounts of bacon, avocado, tomatoes, eggs, and blue cheese. Top each salad with a salmon fillet and about 2 tablespoons of dressing. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • You can make this salad your own by adding any veggies you like
  • Also, try using up leftover grilled or roasted vegetables
  • The dressing will keep in the fridge for 1-2 days but the avocado may oxidize.
  • The salmon can be cooked in advance and kept in the fridge.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on the salmon and cook for the time stated on the package to avoid overcooking, it doesn't take long
