Salmon Salad with Avocado and Sweet Grape Tomatoes

DO IT STEP-BY-STEP

Cut the cucumber into ¼-inch pieces. Put them into a medium bowl.

Thinly slice the scallions; add to the bowl.

Quarter the tomatoes and add to the bowl.

Cut the avocado in half and score the flesh without cutting through the skin. Use a spoon to scoop out the pieces; add to the bowl.

Chop the dill; add to the bowl.

Zest ½ teaspoon of the orange zest. Then juice 1 tablespoon of the orange juice and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice. Add to the bowl.

Add the oil, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Gently toss.

Grill the salmon 5 to 6 minutes until they have nicely charred grill marks and release easily from the grate. Flip and continue to cook to desired doneness, 4 to 7 minutes more for medium (depending on thickness). Serve with the salad.
