We eat a power salad packed with salmon and spinach at least once a week. It’s a cinch to make, even after a hard day’s work. —Jenny Dawson, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower kernels or pepitas (salted pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted, optional

Directions

Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, heat oil over medium heat. Add fillets, skin side up; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork.
In a large bowl, toss spinach with vinaigrette; divide between two plates. Place salmon over spinach; top with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
