Salmon Salad with Potatoes and Green Beans

This Salmon Salad with Potatoes and Green Beans is super easy to make, very filling, and one of my favorite salad recipes ever. A simple citrus dressing completes it.

When I think of healthy food, the first thing I think of is salad.  If we were all playing a game of Scattergories together, & the category was health food – salad would be the thing most of us said first.
I wanted to do a salad – a not-so-boring salad at that.  Something that I could enjoy every bite of, and look forward to having again. Truth is, I can’t say that about many.
With the addition of salmon, potatoes, & green beans – it turns an ordinary salad into the real meal deal.  You can use it with fresh salmon or even a pack of already cooked salmon (although obviously fresh tastes best).

Salmon, Potato, and Green Bean Salad


Salmon, Potato, & Green Bean Salad


  • 1 large potato sliced thin
  • 15 fresh green beans
  • 8 oz salmon filet
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 large lemon cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • sliced tomato


  • Bring a couple inches of water to boil in a large pan, or pot. Sit a steamer basket on top, careful to not make contact with the water. Lay the potato slices in the steamer basket in one layer. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Lay the salmon filet over the potatoes, & sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cover & steam for 8 minutes. Place the green beans in the steamer basket, on top of the salmon. Squeeze one half of the lemon on top of the steamer contents. Cover & steam for an additional 6-8 minutes.
  • Transfer the steamer basket contents to large bowl, & flake the salmon slightly. Spread the chopped romaine lettuce on a plate, and top with the sliced potato, green beans, & salmon. Squeeze the other lemon half evenly around the salad & then drizzle on the olive oil. Garnish with sliced a sliced tomato.
