Grilled Salmon Salad with Homemade Croutons
  • grilled salmon
  • spinach leaves
  • red pepper
  • feta cheese
  • balsamic vinaigrette (Trader Joe's Brand recommended)
  • half-baked ciabatta bread (Trader Joe's brand recommended)
  • 2-3 T. olive oil
  • garlic bread seasoning or italian seasonings
  1. Grill the salmon following the directions in this post. You may wish to omit the glaze and just use the salad dressing. Keep warm by wrapping in foil.
  2. MAKE THE CROUTONS: Slice the bread into 1" cubes. Drizzle the olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Add the bread cubes and sprinkle with the seasonings. Cook over medium heat until the outsides are golden brown.
  3. Layer the spinach, peppers, salmon, feta cheese and croutons on a plate.
  4. Top with balsamic vinaigrette.
You can use whatever veggies you want on this salad. We have had it with cherry tomatoes, olives, shredded carrots etc. It is very adaptable. I usually omit the glaze when grilling the salmon for this salad because the dressing is so good. The Trader Joe's balsamic vinaigrette is amazing. Our favorite dressing!
