Salmon & Feta Wilted Spinach Salad

My friend mentioned a Turkish salmon and couscous dish that sounded fantastic, so I started experimenting. I prefer this salad warm, but it's also tasty served cold. —Jeni Pittard, Statham, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet (8 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet, skin side down. Sprinkle with lemon juice and Greek seasoning. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 15-18 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine quinoa, broth and oil; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender, 12-15 minutes.
  • To serve, break salmon into 1-in. pieces using a fork. Place spinach, tomatoes, quinoa and salmon in a large bowl. Add cheese, herbs and pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve with lemon wedges.
