Feta Salmon Salad

My son David always ordered the satisfying salmon sandwich at a local pub. In trying to replicate it, he came up with this salmon salad. It's the only recipe he's ever made and our entire family thinks it's great. —susan griffiths, Mount Pleasnt, South Carolina

    This is very delicious! The salmon seasoning is very flavorful and the fish could stand alone even without the salad! But the salmon and salad is a great combo! I baked the salmon at 450 degrees for 10 minutes and it worked well. Also added some farro to the salad to give it a unique texture. Excellent recipe!

    Great salad, especially washed down with a Sauvignon Blanc. I actually used grated spinach leaves instead of parsley and it worked! Despite being from the UK, I have also visited a pub in Mount Pleasant SC, is it Sticky Fingers your son orders the salmon sandwich in??

    Used a bit of chopped minced garlic and grated fresh ginger! The rest were here already! More salmon coming home today, and serving 'encore' dinner tonite with arugula salad! Lemon slices? Lime slices? Yum...a combo of both works for me!!

    Have made this a few times now, usually as a supper meal with pasta and a warm veg. Really enjoy the combination of feta and salmon.

    I grill salmonthis way using lemon pepper, salt, a tiny bit of onion power and fresh minced garlic. We like it cooked rare so it melts in your mouth! I'll try the ginger next time as well. We usually habe boiled or mashed potatoes and salad...I put spring onions & capsicum in the salad as well.

    My family loves salmon dishes, but will not make this when my third son is home, as he is deathly allergic to seafood. This recipe is awesome though, and one we'll make many more times, just not when he's here.
