  • Preheat oven (or small convection toaster oven) to 400F. Line baking sheet with foil.
  • Sprinkle salmon with lemon pepper and salt and place on baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until salmon is flaky and cooked all the way through.
  • If you did not purchase precooked bacon, then cook bacon while salmon is in.
  • Assemble the salad with walnuts, bacon, and dried cherries. When the salmon is done add that as well. Right before serving microwave goat cheese for 30 seconds and add to salad. Mix salad around with a fork, the goat cheese will be creamy enough to serve as a dressing.
