Heat the avocado oil in a 10" or larger cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with salt and place skin side down in the skillet. Cook 4-6 minutes until the skin easily releases from the pan, flip and continue to cook another 4-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
In a small jar, combine all of the dressing ingredients. Place the lid on the jar and shake to emulsify. Set aside.
To serve, divide the greens between two bowls. Top with green beans, hard-boiled egg, radishes, olives, onion, cucumber, and salmon. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
