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.
