Grilled Salmon Salad

This is such a healthy salad and there is no scrimping on taste. Grilled salmon and grilled pineapple rings are the perfect combo. We love the homemade dressing drizzled over the top.

We love a delicious green salad, but we kicked it up a notch with a delicious grilled salmon fillet.

Salmon is definitely a superfood with so many health benefits.  Here are just a few reasons why you should include this catch into your weekly menu rotation.

what can you substitute for the spinach in this salad?

  1. Swiss Chard

how to make Grilled Salmon Salad

  • Place salmon on a baking dish with sides at least two inches high.
  • Make marinade by combining brown sugar, juice from pineapple slices, soy sauce, mustard, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a medium sized bowl. Stir together well.

  • Divide marinade in half. Half will be used for salad dressing at the end. Set that aside.
  • Pour other half over the salmon in the baking dish.

  • Marinade for about 20 minutes. Turn salmon over and marinade another 10 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with non stick cooking spray. Or grill salmon over medium heat until cooked through and it begins to flake easily with a fork.

  • Place salmon skin side down on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork.
  • While the salmon is cooking or grilling, grill the pineapple slices over medium heat.
  • With the remaining marinade, add in vinegar and olive oil.
  • Place spinach leaves on 4 salad plates.
  • Arrange grilled pineapple slices, tomatoes, avocados, and cheese crumbles on plate.
  • Top with cooked salmon.
  • Drizzle dressing over all.
