Just delicious. It's really not all that Mexican I guess, but I wasn't sure what else to call it. What a great salad!

What you will need

1 lb salmon fillet

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil

1 pint cherry tomatoes

2 heads of romaine

2 bell peppers

6 oz. queso oaxaca (or feta)

How to cook


Pan fry salmon

Clean up your salmon fillet, removing any scales or bones. Season lightly with salt and pepper and pan fry, skin-side down to start. Check the recipe below if you need more guidance.


Roast and dice bell peppers

Roast and peel the peppers. Remove seeds and dice.


Wash and chop the lettuce

Remove and discard the heart. Wash and dry the leave thoroughly. Chop to desired width.


Make avocado herb dressing

Just a simple mutation of my greek yogurt herb dressing. Toss an avocado in there to make it work with this salad.


Break the salmon into bite-sized chunks. Break up the cheese and combine with all ingredients, except for the dressing. Toss the salad with a little salt and pepper. Serve with the dressing on the side.
