For the salad:

  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • 112g (4 oz.) smoked salmon
  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) rice vinegar
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) pepper

For the dressing:

  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • >1/4 cup (59 ml) red wine vinegar
  • >1/4 cup (59 ml) olive oil
  • >1 tsp (5 ml) honey
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dijon mustard

How to make it:

  1. Peel and thinly slide the cucumber.
  2. Cut the onions into long slices (keep the slices larger if you like onion, but if you are not so keen, dice them into small pieces).
  3. Dice the tomatoes into small pieces.
  4. Add the cucumber, onions and tomatoes to a large bowl with the oregano, rice vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients and set aside to marinate.
  5. In a dressing shaker or small bowl, combine the crushed garlic, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Shake or stir until combined (add yogurt if desired).
  6. In another bowl, add your lettuce and slice or cube your avocado on top.
  7. After your tomatoes, onion and cucumber have marinated in the rice vinegar for a few minutes, add them to the top of your salad alongside a few slices of smoked salmon.
  8. Top with feta cheese and enjoy!


To preserve freshness, keep the tomatoes, cucumber, and onions in one bowl and the lettuce and feta in another bowl. This will allow your tomatoes and cucumber to marinate throughout the day or week and will keep your lettuce from wilting.

Be sure to wait to add your dressing until you are ready to eat your salad. This will also maintain freshness.


Swap salmon with chicken if desired.

Add ½ cup (125 ml) of plain Greek yogurt or plain cashew yogurt for a creamier taste, but remember that swapping ingredients may alter the stated nutritional values.
