Calories: Approx. 200 (including olive oil)
Prep Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: 3-10 minutes 

Ingredients:

  • Pre-cut and clean bag of mixed power greens: kale, chard, spinach (20 calories per 2 cup serving)
  • Wild-caught salmon (120 calories per 3-4 oz serving)
  • Artichoke hearts (marinated in the jar)
Dressing Ingredients:
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon
Options for an extra punch:

Directions:

  1. If frozen, defrost the wild-caught salmon.
  2. Cover with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. 
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place salmon in oven, cook for 10 minutes or as desired. For a faster cooking time, place in the Lekue Microwave Pot (featured cooking gadget in the week of March 24, 2014). Cook in the microwave for about 3 minutes (depending on the size of the fish).
  4. Let the fish cool.
  5. Take this time to mix together the dressing. ¾ part olive oil, ¼ part red wine vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste. 
  6. Place the greens in a bowl or on a plate.
  7. Add salmon, artichoke hearts and other optional ingredients. 
  8. Add the dressing.

Power greens are great fresh or sautéed with some garlic. Just remember that you get the most nutrients from greens and other veggies when they are uncooked.

*Make it easy by purchasing a pre-cut, pre-cleaned bag of mixed greens at your local grocery store. Our favorite power green mix can be found locally at Trader Joes.
