Creative Cravings

Sometimes lunch cravings can get the best of you - especially if you work near a variety of amazing restaurants - which fortunately, I do not (until Whole Foods Markham opens in the fall).

Anyway, I was craving Greek food today, but brought a light lunch so I just decided to add to it and came up with this delicious salad!

Salmon Greek Salad with a twist

2 generous pieces of salmon (mine was from Longo's, not homemade unfortunately)
2 large handfuls of spinach (bed of the salad)
1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
Kalamata Olives
Cucumber sliced
Red Pepper sliced
Red Onion sliced
Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds
1 avocado
Dried oregano seasoning or whatever spice you would like to add

Drizzle with EVOO, apple cider vinegar, 1/2 a lemon and some black pepper

I apologize for the photo as you can't see half of the ingredients but trust me this is filling, delicious and totally healthy! The quinoa and salmon fill you up while the olives and lemon dressing give it a nice zesty taste!!! If you're a die-hard cheese fan you could always add some feta to make it a REAL greek salad ;)
