Who said salads were boring?

You can whip up salad that’s healthy, filling, and delicious to boot. Chef Jameel Lightbourn of Cheesecake Heaven in Nassau shows you just what to do to make an incredible salad you’ll love to eat.

Try your hand a making his pan seared salmon salad, you won’t regret it. It’s simple, quick, easy, and above all, tasty.

On to the recipe!


  • 6 ounces salmon filet (skinless)
  • Lemon wedge
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of ground white pepper
  • Chopped dill
  • Chopped garlic chives
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Optional additions

  • Organic spring mix salad greens
  • Spiral cut raw carrots
  • Spiral cut raw beets
  • Sautéed asparagus
  • Cooked chick peas
  • Grilled lemon
  • Heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • Avocado slices


Season both sides of the fish with salt, pepper, dill, and garlic chives. Squeeze lemon over the top and drizzle with olive oil.

Heat a non-stick pan until hot and place salmon, skin side up, and sear for a few minutes until nice and evenly browned. Turn over once and turn off the stove and put a lid on the pan.

Now it’s time to plate your salad.

Place greens down first, then beets and carrots on top. Put the chickpeas to the top right, with the grilled lemon to the bottom left.

Place the cooked salmon on top followed by asparagus spears, cherry tomato halves, and avocado slices

Enjoy with the grilled lemon or your favourite salad dressing!
