1 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Creamy Dill Sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Drizzle tops evenly with lemon mixture, and gently rub over salmon. Bake 15-20 minutes.

For the Sauce:

In a bowl, mix together Greek Yogurt, garlic, dill, honey, and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Store in refrigerator, about 20 minutes to chill.

While the salmon is in the oven and the sauce is chilling, saute kale until bright green.

Place salmon over kale and top with creamy dill sauce. Enjoy!
