2 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and pat salmon dry. With a piece of foil, make a square, lifting the sides to create a ridge on all sides. Lightly coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the salmon on the foil.
In a small bowl, combine almonds, oil, oregano, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Top the salmon with the almond mixture, covering the top and all edges. Bake the salmon for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the salmon rest for at least 5 minutes at room temperature.
Meanwhile, make the salad. In a bowl, toss all the salad ingredients. Serve the salmon with the salad. Drizzle salmon with additional fresh lemon juice, if desired.
