That is not even the most amazing part. When I get home, he still wants to play with her like crazy and continues to help out. On top of all of that, he has been doing a majority of the cooking and cleaning. He is the best husband! As I transitioned to my new job and the blog has been super busy, I have relied on him for this help and am so, so thankful! I don't want him to go back to work at all.
Anyways, Troy planned this dinner and made this amazing salmon for us. He has been planning a lot of our meals which saves me a lot of time and hassle so that I can spend more time with our baby girl. I made the salad part of it while he put the dry rub on the salmon and grilled it. A real team effort! Adalyn helped too, she did the taste testing part.
Grilled Salmon Chopped Greek Salad
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
2 salmon fillets
1 tablespoon RawSpiceBar Memphis Dry Rib Rub
For the salad:
1 1/2 cups brown rice, cooked according to directions, I recommend quick cook rice to save time

1 can no-salt added tomatoes, drained
1/2 large cucumber, finely diced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
1/2 green pepper, diced
2 tablespoons diced green onion
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 medium lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Combine all ingredients for the salad and mix well. Set aside.
2. About an hour before cooking, rub the RawSpiceBar rub on the salmon.
3. Grill salmon skin side up for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.
4. Plate the salad and place the grilled salmon on top.
This recipe was a huge favorite for my whole family. My baby loved everything in this recipe, especially the cherry tomatoes, salmon and chickpeas. She ate a ton of it and kept signing for more, more, more!
My husband loved the salmon especially and thought that the spice rub was perfect. It had paprika, black peppercorns, garlic, thyme, oregano, onion, celery seed, cumin, cayenne pepper, mustard seed, celery salt and more.
RawSpiceBar which is a monthly subscription service of spices! They are small batch, freshly ground quality spices.They are delivered to your door once a month for $6. If you subscribe for 1 year, you will get one month for free.
RawSpiceBar has a great idea in that they were trying to eliminate the waste of pre-ground spice jars sitting in your cabinet too long. I can totally relate to this as I just threw out spices that were in my cupboards for 5 years yesterday.
I received 3 samples for the August subscription including Applewood smoked salt, triple ice cream spices and the Memphis dry rib rub. I looked at the ingredients for the rib rub and since they were Greek inspired, I decided to use them on our salmon for a Greek-style meal. They were rich in flavors without being too overpowering. You could tell that they were high quality spices- not the typical $1 spices I get sometimes haha.
