Paleo Grilled Salmon Salad with Honey-Lime Vinaigrette

There’s nothing that makes my tummy happier than freshly-grilled salmon! Seasoned just right and perfectly seared, served warm and flaky, oh yum! There’s just nothing else like it!

But the way I really prefer to enjoy my grilled salmon these days isn’t plating the whole grilled fillet and digging in. Instead, I love breaking the grilled fillet up, tossing it into freshly-chopped salad fixings, and then pouring a homemade vinaigrette over everything. Now that’s how to make salmon the centerpiece of a healthy entourage of flavors that will transport your taste buds to new heights.

That’s why I’m sharing this ridiculously easy paleo recipe with you, in hopes of getting you to enjoy salmon in a slightly different way. Try this salad combo once, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it.

As you’ll see, this is a simple recipe. I’ve suggested some ingredients here to build an amazing paleo salmon salad, but feel free to craft your own maritime masterpiece.

What I really love about this one is the simple honey-lime vinaigrette. You can always opt for your favorite paleo salad dressing, but I’d really urge you to give this easy vinaigrette a try. It’s both sweet and tangy, and to me is the perfect complement to grilled salmon and all the other fixings on your plate.

So that’s it friends; just a simple and delicious paleo salad with freshly-grilled salmon as your protein.
