This is what I call the “ideal summer lunch”: a perfect combination of fresh and nutritious ingredients, prepared in a simple, easy, deliciously juicy and natural way, which is both, healthy and beautiful.

The beetroot, tomato and red bell pepper salad adds amazing color and life to the basic grilled salmon, and, together, they make a perfectly balanced meal that has all the good stuff of nature.

This great looking summer lunch can be prepared in just 30 minutes because it doesn´t require much cooking time, just 15 minutes to grill the salmon and the prep time to chop up the salad, which is absolutely raw and preserves all the minerals, vitamins and fiber of its fresh, plant-derived ingredients.

I´ve created this recipe as a summer lunch for two, you may divide or multiply the ingredients according to the number of people you are making it for.

I also included a “Green Walnut and Roquefort Salad” as an optional starter for a more elaborate lunch, which can be part of a complete menu when you want to do something a little bit more sophisticated or when you’re entertaining.


Ingredients for the Beetroot, Tomato and Red Bell Pepper Side Salad

  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/3 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/6 beetroot, finely chopped (raw)
  • 2 tbsp parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp oleic oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 pinch of grated fresh ginger

For the Extra Oomph

Bella Sun Luci, Sun Dried Tomato Halves with Italian Herbs, 6.5 Ounce Jar
Bella Sun Luci, Sun Dried Tomato Halves with Italian Herbs, 6.5 Ounce Jar

Sun dried tomatoes in pure olive oil with Italian herbs, the olive oil I use to give extra oomph to my grilled salmon and many other food preparations.

 

Cook Time for the Grilled Salmon and Side Salad

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: serves 2 people 7 ounces of salmon

Ingredients for the Grilled Salmon

  • 2 Salmon Fillets, (about 7 ounces or 200g each is a good portion size)
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Garlic and herb infused olive oil
  • Dried dill

Instructions for the Grilled Salmon

  1. Place the salmon fillets in a non-stick baking tray.
  2. Condiment the salmon with sea salt, pepper and dried dill.
  3. If you have it on hand, drizzle the salmon with some garlic and herb infused olive oil for a little bit of extra oomph (I use the aromatized and very flavorful olive oil with Italian herbs that comes with store-bought sun dried tomatoes). If not, you can add just a bit of plain olive oil. Fresh salmon already contains a good amount of healthy fat that keeps it moist; it tastes delicious just like that, it doesn´t really need much added flavor.
  4. Grill the salmon for about 15 minutes in the grilling mode of your oven and it’s done!

NOTE: Grilled salmon should be lightly golden and crisp on the outside, while flaky, soft and juicy on the inside.

Instructions for the Beetroot, Tomato and Red Bell Pepper Side Salad

  1. For the dressing: in a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, salt, pepper and ginger; once the condiments have dissolved, add the oleic oil while energetically mixing with a mixing globe, this ensures that the oil will emulsify with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Once the tomato, red bell pepper, beetroot, red onion, parsley and cilantro are chopped, mix together in a nice serving bowl.
  3. Dress the salad with the simple vinaigrette you made in step 1 and it’s done!


NOTE: the beetroot in this recipe is raw, which is why it’s incorporated in small quantities and finely chopped in very small pieces; you may also use cooked beetroot if you are so inclined. On the contrary, if you are used to eating raw food, you might even want to add some more beetroot, which gives the salad a very nice kind-of-sweet touch.


For a Complete Menu: Starter + Grilled Salmon with Side Salad

If you want to make your lunch a two course meal, here is a fresh, easy to make first course that I suggest as a starter, which complements the main course of grilled salmon with beetroot, tomato and red bell pepper salad.

It is a green based salad with toasted walnuts and Roquefort cheese, again a very quick and easy to make dish as it requires almost no cooking time other than the 5 minutes it takes to toast the nuts (which you could also use raw).

Green Walnut and Roquefort Salad

Ingredients

  • 3 cups leafy greens mesclun of your choice (I used predominantly Boston lettuce in this one)
  • 8 toasted walnut halves coarsely chopped
  • 3 ounces Roquefort cheese
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  1. Gently toast the walnuts over low heat in a pan.
  2. For the dressing: in a small bowl, mix together the balsamic vinegar with the salt & pepper; once the condiments have dissolved, add the olive oil while energetically mixing with a mixing globe (again, this procedure ensures that the oil will emulsify with the rest of the ingredients).
  3. Place the leafy greens mesclun in a nice serving bowl.
  4. Crumble the Roquefort cheese on top.
  5. Sprinkle with the coarsely chopped toasted walnuts.
  6. Dress with the simple balsamic vinaigrette and it’s done!

Pstraubie48, I am quite pleased to read you find this colorful beetroot, red bell pepper and tomato salad appealing, it really goes great with the grilled salmon, you will see…. I am also a salmon lover, however, I don’t eat it as often as I would like to because it is hard to find it fresh in Mexico City, and when it is frozen it is absolutely not the same :( I hope you enjoy eating yours with this side salad. Thanks for dropping by and commenting!

littlegreenwoman, thanks for the suggestion, I don’t think I have enough recipes for a cookbook yet but maybe in the future..... It would definitely be something I would feel very proud of given the fact that I love both cooking and food.

Oh! What an article! Sometimes I don’t like getting too involved in that kind of information though..... I eat a lot, and I mean A LOT of vegetable fats and I am quite lean, which means that, coming from my own personal experience, I wouldn’t pay much attention to that.

Thanks for dropping by and for your comments :)

Hi geingwell,

Thanks for your interest and feedback. I would rather pan-fry the salmon instead of microwaving it. If the microwave is the only choice you have, go ahead and experiment, you´ll have to check your microwave potency and be watching as it cooks so that it doesn´t end up completely dry.

Good luck!

Hey Jamie! Nice of you to drop by! If you haven´t had fresh salmon, you are in for a treat! Grilled salmon is absolutely delicious and very healthy as well. Definitely on the top of my list.

Go ahead and substitute the beetroot for the pickled beets, no problem there. That´s the great thing about cooking, you can always mix and match and give recipes your own touch. In this case, pickled beets will give a very similar taste to the side salad. Hope you enjoy it and let me know how you found fresh salmon!!!

Thanks for your interest and comments :)

Eric Calderwood, I understand, it is easy to get busy with other stuff in life and neglect our nutrition but we really shouldn´t!!! The advantage of this salad is that beetroot, tomato and red bell pepper stay well for a long time, and you can stuck up on those and ensure you won´t run out of fresh produce.

I do that all the time as well and that is one of the great things of cooking. Creativity can go as far as our imagination allows us. Beetroot, smoked salmon, tomato and quinoa salad sound delicious to me as well. Thanks for your input and comments!

Now this looks so good. You gave me a great idea for using the leftovers in my house. The only thing I am missing is a red bell pepper, and the ones in the garden have not grown yet (and some animal ate off all the leaves).

Here's the interpretation I am going to try today: beet, smoked salmon, tomoato, quinoa salad. The dressing, some champagne vinaigrette from...you guessed it, my followers, Trader Joe's.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe. And congratulations on your Hub of the Day.

Hi Movie Master,

I myself thought the beetroot, tomato and red bell pepper salad was the perfect side dish for a grilled salmon because it is juicy and fresh, plus it looks beautiful with all that color; the beetroot plays an important part as it gives a nice subtle sweetness to the dish.
