  • 30–60 grams greens – arugula, spinach, romaine, etc.

  • 43 grams tzatziki (or hummus) store-bought or homemade

  • optional additions: fresh herbs (mint, dill or Italian parsley), feta, avocado, micro greens, pickled onions

Lemony Greek Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • 30 ml lemon juice

  • 30 ml red wine vinegar ( or sub AC vinegar)

  • 59 ml olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Set the rice to cook and make the Greek Dressing (just whisk together in a small jar or bowl).

  2. Cut salmon and sprinkle with salt, pepper and all the spices.

  3. Cook Salmon: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, sear the seasoned salmon for a few minutes. Feel free to add more paprika if you want more color. Turn oven to sear the other side. Turn heat off. (See notes for baking.)

  4. Assemble Bowls: Divide the rice (warm or chilled) between bowls. ( Shallow bowls work nicely here.) Divide and arrange the greens, cucumbers, olives, tomatoes, salmon (warm or chilled) and a dollop of tzatziki. Sprinkle with fresh herbs, microgreens, avocado, etc, or your choice of toppings.

  5. Spoon a few tablespoons of dressing over the whole bowl, including the salmon.

  6. Enjoy!
