Ingredients

    Raspberry-Dijon Vinaigrette

  • 1 Tbsp canola oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

    Remaining Ingredients

  • 1 salmon fillet, about 13 oz
  • 1 head dark green leaf lettuce
  • 3 cups frozen raspberries, thawed


Directions

  1. In small bowl, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients. Reserve 1/2 cup and pour remaining 1 cup into resealable plastic bag. Add salmon to bag, seal and place in refrigerator. Marinate up to 30 minutes.
  2. Wash and dry lettuce. Set aside.
  3. Preheat indoor grill pan or outdoor barbecue to medium heat. Remove salmon from plastic bag and discard marinade. Grill salmon 5-10 minutes or until cooked through, turning once.
  4. Mix together reserved dressing with 2 cups thawed raspberries. Set aside.
  5. Chop lettuce and divide equally between four plates, about 1-1/2 cups per plate.
  6. Divide cooked salmon into four equal pieces and place each piece on top of lettuce. Spoon 1/4 of raspberry mixture over salmon. Garnish with extra raspberries and serve.

Notes:

Raspberries and Dijon mustard make a unique combination of sweet and savory.
