To make

Instructions

To make the Lemon Oregano Dressing, whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl.

Toss feta cheese with 2 tablespoons Lemon Oregano Dressing and let marinate until ready to use (up to 24 hours).

Use half of the remaining dressing to marinate the salmon in a bowl or zip lock bag for 1—4 hours. Prepare the salmon according to package directions.

While salmon is cooking, prepare vegetables and place in a large mixing bowl; toss with feta and remaining dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide among 4 dinner plates and top each with a portion of salmon. Serve and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Prepare the Lemon Oregano Dressing in advance to allow the salmon and feta cheese to marinate.

Serve with garlic bread.
