You've got to try it with this salad!


4 skinless salmon fillets, (6 ounces each)

Coarse salt and ground pepper

10 ounces baby spinach

1 pint grape tomatoes, halved

3/4 cup crumbled fresh goat cheese (3 ounces)

1/4 cup pecans

1/4 cup Balsamic-Rosemary Vinaigrette


Heat up your broiler, with the rack about four inches from the top. Line a baking sheet with foil and after seasoning it with salt and pepper, place the salmon on it. Broil it for 7-9 minutes but don't turn it. When it's opaque, it's ready. Give it time to cool and once it has, flake it.

Next, place an even amount of tomatoes and spinach on serving plates. Put the salmon on top, along with the pecans and cheese, then drizzle the vinaigrette over it.
