Grown in a climate-controlled greenhouse in Middlefield, Ohio, Great Lakes Growers has no need to use pesticides or any other chemicals. Their lettuce has consistently great taste and texture thanks to their carefully controlled environment and optimal nutrition is guaranteed.

Salmon Strawberry & Feta Salad


For the Salmon

  • 10 oz. wild caught Sockeye salmon fillet
  • 3 Tbsp. liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • ½ Tbsp. wasabi paste
  • 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s honey

For the Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 2/3 cup NatureFresh strawberries, diced
  • 3 Tbsp. Heinen's balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Heinen's olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s fig glaze
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s organic cinnamon and vanilla pure organic maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt

For the Salad

  • 2 cups of Great Lakes Growers living lettuce, loosely chopped
  • 2 cups Heinen’s baby arugula
  • 1 cup Heinen's crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup NatureFresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup Driscoll's blackberries
  • ½ cup Fresh Gourmet crispy beets


  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the salmon into two 6 oz. fillets, or have the Heinen’s Seafood Department cut them for you.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the liquid aminos, wasabi, BBQ sauce and honey. Place the salmon fillets on the parchment paper and brush generously with the marinade.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and brush with the remaining sauce. Place back in the oven and turn the broiler on high. Broil the salmon for 2-3 minutes or until the marinade starts to caramelize.
  4. Remove the salmon from the oven and place on top of the oven while you make the dressing and assemble the salad.
  5. In a food processor, add all of the dressing ingredients. Dice the strawberries beforehand to allow for smoother blending. Blend on high until smooth and runny. Pour into a container or serving saucer. This will remain fresh in the fridge for up to one week.
  6. Add 1 cup of arugula to each plate, then top with 1 cup of Great Lakes Growers lettuce.
  7. Sprinkle on feta cheese crumbles, then place the salmon fillets on top.
  8. Arrange the strawberries and blackberries, then sprinkle on the crispy beets and drizzle on the strawberry vinaigrette.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
