How to Make Ginger Lime Salmon Salad
The dressing is a mixture of olive oil, dijon mustard, honey, and of course some ginger and lime.
I like making vinaigrette dressings in a mason jar.
That way I just put everything in, give it a shake, and it’s done.
So half a cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup lime juice, and a tablespoon each grated ginger, honey, and dijon mustard go in the jar.
Along with some kosher salt and pepper.
Remove a few spoonfuls of the dressing to brush on the salmon.
And set the rest of the dressing aside for serving with the salads.
Brush some of the dressing on, and save some for brushing halfway through cooking.
And season with more kosher salt and pepper.
You can bake these on a baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for 9 to 10 minutes.
Or cook them in the air fryer at the same time and temp, 400 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes.
Whatever your cooking method, brush with more of the ginger lime dressing halfway through 🙂
Let the salmon cool while you make the salads.
Add any toppings you like… I went with avocado, walnuts, cucumber, and tomatoes.
I am using chopped romaine lettuce for this salad.
Just chop it up and divide between four bowl, plates, or containers if you are meal prepping this salad.
Top Ginger Lime Salmon Salad with toppings of choice and serve with the dressing 🙂
