  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add green beans, cover, and steam until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and let cool.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Brush salmon with vegetable oil; season with salt and pepper.

  • Cook salmon on the preheated grill until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

  • Layer lettuce, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, green beans, and hard-boiled eggs in a large glass trifle bowl. Place salmon on top. Garnish with bacon and spring onions. Serve dressing alongside.

Cook's Note:

If you are using prepackaged lettuce, you will need 6 cups.

I made adjustments, but still gave the recipe 5 stars because it's a great recipe as a single entree. I replaced the green beans with asparagus, seared the salmon instead of grilling, used more salmon because my family loves protein and the salad was the main dish, added avocado, served the slide with cilantro lime dressing since some do not like mayonnaise. I served the dinner with bread and a basil butter from Allrecipes.com. Read More

I exchanged shredded cheese for the bacon, but everything else was the same as far as salad ingredients. It was beautiful on the table. Served with fresh bread (from my bread machine). Very impressive, and served 4, with leftovers for another 3! Making it again for a picnic so we have something for the healthier eaters (it's a community picnic where almost everyone brings fatty foods). This dish is a show stopper! Read More
