Alaskan Salmon Salad Monterey


salmon on salad
 
The cool greens in this California-accented recipe make a great setting for wild Alaskan salmon hot from a grill or broiler grate.
 
The walnuts add even more omega-3s to the salmon, while the fish, nuts, juice, chives, and the grapes abound in antioxidants.
