Soak cedar plank large enough to comfortably fit on barbecue grill in water for at least 2 hours. About 20 minutes before grilling, preheat grill until internal temperature reads 400 F (200 C). Cut salmon into 6 or 8 small portions. Rub salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Remove soaked plank and place prepared salmon fillets on board, allowing at least 1/2 in (1.25 cm) between fillets. Keep water bottle sprayer handy to prevent wood from flaring up. Place soaked plank with salmon on barbecue grill and close lid. Smoke salmon fillets for about 20 minutes, or until almost cooked throughout. Spray board with water if flare-ups occur. You want salmon to be a little raw in the centre as it will continue cooking as it rests.
While salmon is cooking, prepare remaining ingredients. In mini food processor, combine all dressing ingredients, then whirl until emulsified. Set aside.
Starting with salad greens, arrange salad ingredients on large platter. Top with a row of diced eggs, shredded chicken, cucumber, and tomatoes. Finish with cedar planked salmon. Alternatively, divide salad ingredients among individual serving bowls.
Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with crumbled feta. Serve immediately.
