At most parties, the cocktail glasses contain gin or vodka and vermouth--but Lisa likes to fill hers with salmon salad instead.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 10-ounce salmon fillet
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups mesclun greens
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes when tested with a fork. Transfer to a plate and let cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the mesclun greens among 6 martini glasses. Slice salmon into thin strips and arrange on top. Add avocado, cucumber, and tomatoes to glasses. Drizzle with lemon juice/olive oil mixture.
