Summery Grilled Salmon Salad


It's hard to beat the simplicity of this light yet filling recipe, with its contrasting combination of hot, smoky Salmon, crisp veggies, sweet new potatoes, and cool greens.

Today's recipe includes a homemade lemon mustard vinaigrette, for which you can substitute bottled Italian salad dressing.

Likewise, you can use any compatible seasoning mix in place of Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix.

The best potatoes to use are spring-harvest "new" potatoes, which feature thin, wispy skins and a crisp, waxy texture.

Unlike their fully grown counterparts, these young seasonal potatoes keep their shape once cooked and cut, which makes them well-suited to salads. New potatoes are also sweeter because their sugar has not yet converted into starch.


Summery Grilled Salmon Salad

Prep time 20 minutes
Grill time 78 minutes
Serves 4

1 lb new potatoes
1 pound asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch lengths (yields 3 cups)
2 red or yellow bell peppers cut into 1 inch pieces
4 (6 oz each) wild Alaskan Salmon fillets

Dressing ingredients
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoons Organic Salmon Marinade Mix (regular or no salt)
