Ingredients

Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar optional
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Salad

  • 2 salmon filets grilled
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups mixed salad field greens
  • 8 cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 4 oz. Feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shoestring potato sticks

Instructions

Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the vinaigrette except for the olive oil. (Note: if you are using an aged balsamic, you may not need to add the brown sugar as it may already taste quite sweet.) While whisking briskly, add the olive oil in a steady stream and combine well until the dressing is emulsified.

Salad

  • Marinate and grill salmon filets - see the link in the notes section to my BEST GRILLED SALMON recipe.
  • Wash and trim asparagus. Toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes or until crisp tender, turning frequently. (Using a grill basket works well!)
  • Add salad greens to a large bowl. Top with tomatoes, grilled asparagus, and Feta cheese. Add grilled salmon and top with potato sticks.
  • Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and serve.
