Grapefruit Salmon Salad Recipe from Savanna Jimenez
"If you know me or have been following me for a while, then you know I love Garnish & Gather! I could go on forever, but a few reasons why I love them is because they are an Atlanta based company, they source everything from local farmers, the dishes are incredible tasting and they strive to be as sustainable as possible. If you live in the Atlanta area and haven’t tried them out yet, I highly recommend them!!
Another cool feature about Garnish & Gather that I love is that you can add-on local groceries to your order, or without a meal order! I’m talking about farm fresh veggies and local products + produce- it’s exactly like going to the farmers market, but online!!! It’s so easy and it makes me SO happy because I can get the fresh food I want even when I can’t make the farmers market, because Garnish & Gather will deliver it for me!
So this week I decided to order some food through the grocery section and create my own dish- a Grapefruit Salmon Salad! It’s tangy & light from the citrus, but nourishing & creamy from the healthy fats from the avocado + salmon. It was such an easy & tasty combo, so check out the recipe below!
Here’s what you’ll need at home: – olive oil – cilantro – pumpkin seeds – fresh garlic
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 400 2. Season salmon with salt, pepper and a little olive oil. Place each fillet in parchment paper (skin side down) and top with slices of grapefruit. Wrap until covered and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. 3. Place pumpkin seeds (as many as you want) on a baking sheet and toss in olive oil and sea salt 4. Place in oven when salmon has about 10 minutes left and bake. Toss halfway through to make sure they don’t burn!
While the salmon + seeds are in the oven, it’s time to make the avocado dressing!
Avocado Dressing: 1. Place one ripe avocado in a blender 2. Add about 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice 3. Add a bulb of fresh garlic 4. Add a handful of fresh cilantro 5. Add a few tablespoons of water 6. Season with salt and pepper to taste 7. Blend together until smooth!
Assembly: Place a mix of the kale and arugula in a big salad bowl and top with the salmon, pumpkin seeds, fresh grapefruit slices and avocado dressing. Enjoy with a grapefruit sparkling water from Montane- the perfect side!"
