Alaskan Salmon Salad Monterey

The cool greens in this California-accented recipe make a great setting for wild Alaskan salmon hot from a grill or broiler grate.
The walnuts add even more omega-3s to the salmon, while the fish, nuts, juice, chives, and the grapes abound in antioxidants.

Salmon ingredients
*To speed the process, leave the salmon in its vacuum pack and immerse in cold water for 20-30 minutes until flexible.

  • 2 Tablespoons organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons snipped chives

Salmon instructions
  • Preheat broiler or grill to medium-high heat.
