Ingredients

Marinade/Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 pound (500 g) skinless salmon fillets

Salad:

  • 4 cups Romaine (or Cos) lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 large cucumber diced

  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives (or black olives), sliced (optional)

Instructions

  • Whisk together all of the marinade/dressing ingredients in a large jug. Pour out half of the marinade into a large, shallow dish. Refrigerate the remaining marinade to use as the dressing later.
