With the warmer weather coming on, it's officially salad season! This big green salad with salmon, tomatoes and avocado makes for a perfectly satisfying fresh and healthy meal.
- 4 wild salmon fillets, 4 oz each
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- fresh black pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, recommend: Braggs
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
- 8 ounces avocado, diced (from 2 small)
- 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

- Season salmon with 2 teaspoons of the Dijon, 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper.
- Adjust the oven on the second rack. Broil salmon 6 to 7 minutes, until cooked through.
- In a large bowl, combine the red onion with olive oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon remaining Dijon, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste; let it sit about 5 minutes, so the flavor of the onion mellows.

- Divide the salad in 4 bowls and top each with salmon.
