Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa and Baby Greens

Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa and Baby GreensSalmon fillets are grilled and arranged atop a bed of baby lettuce and fennel glistening with a basil-kissed citrus salsa.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 oranges, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
5 basil leaves, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon seasoned rice-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 (5 to 6-ounce) salmon fillets
1 (5-ounce) package DOLE® Sweet Baby Lettuces or other DOLE salad variety
1/2 bulb fennel, thinly sliced

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine oranges, onion, basil and oil in medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Mix orange juice, vinegar, and mustard in small bowl. Whisk in oil; season with salt and pepper.
