The salad is dressed with a tangy and savory dressing made from red wine vinegar, oregano, and dill, which adds a bright and herby flavor to the dish.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Whisk together all of the marinade/dressing ingredients (olive oil, dill, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper) in a large mason jar. Pour out half of the marinade into a large, shallow dish. Refrigerate the remaining marinade to use as the dressing later.

Step 2

Coat the salmon fillet with the marinade. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sear salmon on both sides until crispy and cooked to your liking.

Step 3

While salmon is cooking, prepare all of the salad ingredients (lettuce, tomato, avocado, cucumber, and onion) and mix or arrange in a lard salad bowl.

Step 4

Slice salmon and arrange over the salad. Drizzle the salmon salad with the remaining dressing that you kept aside.
