BBQ Salmon Salad

Good-for-you salmon just got richer with the abundance of vitamins already in the juice which makes a fabulous salad dressing.


2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoons sugar
0.5 teaspoon cumin
0.25 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
36 ounces salmon fillet(6 fillets about 6 ounces each )
5 tablespoons olive oil
1.5 cups V8® 100% Vegetable Juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 small tomato, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 pound mixed salad greens


Stir the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, cumin, white pepper and paprika in a small bowl. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons mixture for the dressing. Sprinkle the salmon with the remaining seasoning mixture. Cover the salmon and refrigerate for 6 hours.
Lightly oil the grill rack. Heat the grill to high. Brush the salmon with 1 tablespoon oil. Grill for 8 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Beat the vegetable juice, vinegar, tomato, remaining oil and reserved seasoning mixture in a large bowl with a fork or whisk until blended. Add the salad greens and toss to coat.
Divide the salad among 6 plates. Top with the salmon.
