As a registered dietitian passionate about creating wholesome and delicious meals, I’m so excited to share my recipe for this Salmon Cobb Salad with a homemade Creamy Dill Dressing! Salads have come a long way from being considered bland and merely a “diet food.” In the past, they were often associated with restrictive eating patterns and lacked creativity in flavors and ingredients. However, the perception of salads has evolved significantly, showcasing that they can be hearty, satisfying meals that are anything but boring.

How to Make a Salmon Cobb Salad with Creamy Dill Dressing

Start by seasoning the salmon with garlic powder, dill, and salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add in the salmon, top-side down and cook until it’s golden and crisp on the first side. Flip the salmon and continue cooking until cooked through, depending on the thickness of salmon. 

Transfer the salmon to a plate and let cool before flaking it with forks into bite-sized pieces.

Next, arrange the romaine lettuce on a large platter. Arrange salad ingredients, along with the salmon, in rows over the romaine lettuce.

Combine ingredients for the Creamy Dill Dressing and drizzle evenly over the salad just before serving. Doesn’t that sound amazing?!
