Roasted Salmon Nicoise Salad

I could live on salads. Dark leafy greens tossed with veggies, olive oil, balsamic and grilled protein is pretty much the perfect meal in my book. Mark doesn't jump up and down like I do over this "girl food" but after we eat salad for dinner, he always leaves the table happy and admits how tasty it was. Here's a healthy (and classic) dinner salad recipe to jump start your week.

Sophie, this one's for you!

Roasted Salmon Nicoise Salad
serves two

1/2 lb. fillet wild salmon
1 Romaine heart, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
6 spears asparagus, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced in half
2 small red potatoes
Olive oil for drizzling
Dried dill

Slice potatoes into small wedges and toss on a small baking sheet with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. On a separate baking sheet, place salmon and drizzle with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper and some dried dill. Place both sheets in the oven and turn the oven to 400 degrees. Roast for 25 minutes. Salmon should be flaky and potatoes should be sizzling and crispy. I usually leave the potatoes in the oven for an extra five minutes while the salmon cools off.

Meanwhile, toss asparagus pieces in a little olive oil and sautee on medium heat in a medium pan until bright green and tender. 

Assemble salad as shown above and top with Champagne Vinagirette or Mediterranean Vinaigrette

  5. This was very colourful. We all adored it. It'd been quite straightforward and even a dish I would result in the firm. The sole motive I could watch right now that this burning is cooking it overly high in warmth. Judge your stove women and men. When it burgers hot, don't prepare it over medium. Mine cooks very cheaply, so I simply switched it down. I'd a lot of very yummy curry which fell down alongside caramelized attractively. The oven baked salmon was moist, also the flavour and also flaky was so wonderful. I served it on rice with stir-fried snow peas, lettuce and peas cooked using a little minced garlic, only just a very small soy sauce, peanut butter, and also a small bit of peppermint oil together with plus a spoonful of toasted sesame oil. Exactly what a meal!
