Salmon, Potato, & Green Bean Salad

When I think of healthy food, the first thing I think of is salad.  If we were all playing a game of Scattergories together, & the category was health food - salad would be the thing most of us said first.

So, when it came time for creating another healthy recipe for Life Around Home (the social-media television show I'm involved in), I knew I wanted to do a salad - a not-so-boring salad at that.  Something that I could enjoy every bite of, and look forward to having again.  Truth is, I can't say that about many.

With the addition of salmon, potatoes, & green beans - it turns an ordinary salad into the real meal deal.  You can use it with fresh salmon or even a pack of already cooked salmon (although obviously fresh tastes best).

(serves 1)

  • 1 large potato, sliced thin
  • 15 fresh green beans
  • 8oz salmon filet
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large lemon, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • sliced tomato


Bring a couple inches of water to  boil in a large pan, or pot.  Sit a steamer basket on top, careful to not make contact with the water.  Lay the potato slices in the steamer basket in one layer.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Lay the salmon filet over the potatoes, & sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Cover & steam for 8 minutes.  Place the green beans in the steamer basket, on top of the salmon.  Squeeze one half of the lemon on top of the steamer contents. Cover & steam for an additional 6-8 minutes.

Transfer the steamer basket contents to large bowl, & flake the salmon slightly.  Spread the chopped romaine lettuce on a plate, and top with the sliced potato, green beans, & salmon. Squeeze the other lemon half evenly around the salad & then drizzle on the olive oil. Garnish with sliced a sliced tomato.
