SkinPRO - Salmon and Avocado Salad Recipe - October 2023

Tender salmon tops a hearty salad of red cabbage, carrots and avocados tossed with a creamy dill vinaigrette in this quick, easy dinner that's not only delicious but also healthy and full of skin loving oils and proteins.

Total Time: 30 mins.   Servings: 4


  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh dill, plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 2 avocados, chopped, divided
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 (5 ounce) skinless salmon fillets
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 cups spring mix salad greens
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots


  1. Place dill, water, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, garlic, 1/2 cup avocado, 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a blender. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon evenly with pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the salmon to the pan; cook until golden on the bottom and mostly opaque around the sides, about 4 minutes. Carefully flip the fillets; remove from heat. Let the fillets stand in the pan until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Combine salad greens, cabbage, carrots and the reserved dressing in a large bowl; toss gently until evenly coated. Divide the salad among 4 plates; top with the remaining avocado. Top each salad with a salmon fillet; garnish with additional dill, if desired.
