Source: Original Recipe


  • 1 avocado, cut, pitted, peeled
  • 1/2 cup bottled light ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. milk, divided
  • 1 Tbsp chopped chives
  • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, divided
  • 12 oz. salmon filet
  • 2 Tbsp plus 1 1/2 tsp. blackening seasoning, divided
  • 5 Tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 medium green tomatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 egg
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens


  1. Chop one half of the avocado and place into a blender with the ranch dressing, 1/4 cup milk, chopped chives and parsley. Blend until smooth. Pour into a small bowl and refrigerate while preparing the salad.
  2. Pat the salmon filet dry and sprinkle on both sides with 2 Tbsp. blackening seasoning. Heat 1 Tbsp. canola oil in a nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add the salmon and cook until blackened on one side, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn the filet and continue cooking until the other side is blackened and the salmon is tender, flaky, but not overcooked, about another 3-4 minutes. Keep warm.
  3. Place flour onto a piece of waxed paper and stir in remaining 1 1/2 tsp. blackening seasoning. Place egg in a shallow bowl and with a fork slightly beat with remaining 1 Tbsp. milk.
