You'll be eating this Mango Salmon Salad all summer! It's sweet and tangy, with just a little kick from the cajun seasoned salmon. Make it for a simple and delicious meal.


  • 2 (4 ounce) salmon filets
  • olive oil, for brushing
  • 1/4 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 3 1/2 cups crispy leaf lettuce
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 small avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 cup cilantro lime vinaigrette


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. Place skin side down on a foil lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with olive oil and season with cajun seasoning.
  2. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then broil for an additional 1-2 minutes to get the tops a little crispy. It's done when it easily flakes with a fork and is opaque inside.
  3. Divide the lettuce among 2 plates. Top each with diced mango, sliced avocado, and quartered cherry tomatoes. Place a piece of salmon on top of each salad, then drizzle with cilantro lime vinaigrette.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
