Ingredients
  

For the Mediterranean Vinaigrette:

  • 3 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp. fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. Basil
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

For the Salmon Bowls:

  • 2 cups cooked Wild Rice
  • 2 Salmon Filets 3 oz. each
  • 1/2 tsp. Greek Seasoning**
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped Red Onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped Cucumber
  • 1/4 cup quartered Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese

Instructions
 

For the Mediterranean Vinaigrette:

  • Whisk all ingredients together and set aside.*

For the Salmon Bowls:

  • Season each salmon filet with 1/4 tsp. Greek seasoning. Set the salmon aside, and allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the salmon, skin-side down, for about 3-4 minutes or until it releases easily from the pan. Flip the salmon and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to preferred doneness. Transfer cooked salmon to a cutting board to rest.
  • Combine red onion, red bell pepper, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and feta in a bowl. Toss the vegetables with half of the Mediterranean vinaigrette.
  • Divide the cooked rice between two bowls. Top each bowl with one salmon filet, half of the Mediterranean vegetable medley, and divide remaining Mediterranean vinaigrette between the bowls. Enjoy!

Notes

*Cover and chill the vinaigrette for two hours before serving for ideal flavor. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
**I typically use Cavender's Greek seasoning, but for a homemade Greek seasoning recipe, I use: 1/2 tsp. each of kosher salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and basil. 1/4 tsp. each of parsley and dill. 1/8 tsp. of thyme and sugar. Whisk to combine, store in an airtight container with other spices.
