Salmon Fruit Salad with Raspberry Dressing


Today's light Salmon salad recipe features the fresh flavors of fruits, herbs, and spices.

Fruits and herbs provide a setting perfect in which to present succulent wild salmon cooked by poaching: the lightest, most fool-proof method.

All of the fruits and herbs are rich in beneficial antioxidant compounds, and some research suggests that cilantro can help the body detoxify heavy metals.


Poached Salmon Fruit Salad with Raspberry Dressing

4 (6 oz each) wild Alaska Salmon fillet portions
2 cups white wine, low-sodium vegetable broth, or low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth
2 cups clam juice or fish stock
