Colorful Mediterranean salmon salad with warm red potatoes and green beans drizzled with a zesty salad dressing! Warm days have me craving salad and this salmon salad is just perfect for a quick weekday supper. It takes minutes to put together and is a complete meal in itself. Grill or broil the salmon in the oven while the potatoes and green beans are cooking in a pot. Then just put everything together with some salad greens and you have an easy salmon salad that is loaded with good stuff. June just happens to be Mediterranean diet month so this salmon salad is in line with that theme too. You add some chili, mustard and mint to balsamic vinaigrette and use some of this to paint the fish before broiling creating a salmon fillet bursting with flavor. Toss in some warm potatoes, beans, greens, pistachio, olives and you have an easy to make Mediterranean salmon salad. It gourmet salad made at home, quick and easy for that week night meal !! This is on our menu every week except that I change the dressing on the salmon to change things a bit.
Salmon is chock-full of brain food in the form of omega 3 and DHEA. Red potatoes add a heart healthy dose of potassium while salad greens, tomatoes and fresh beans add fiber and vitamins. Olives and pistachio add that Mediterranean touch and a boost of healthy fat. All in all a heart healthy Mediterranean salmon salad!!
