A generous one-dish meal from the oven adapted from a Bobby Flay recipe in Bon Appetit. Do NOT use bagged, chopped greens for this, the tough stems in the mix will ruin it. Get whatever whole greens look best on shopping day: mustard, chard, kale, spinach, etc. You may need to just the saute time for the greens depending upon how tender they are. Use extra Caper Vinaigrette on cooked chicken or a salad.

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F Brush a medium baking dish or two individual serving-sized baking dishes with oil, or spray with a cooking release spray. Combine chickpeas, cumin, and 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl. Mash about half of chickpeas with a fork; season with salt and pepper. Transfer chickpea mixture to prepared dish(es).
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add chopped greens and cook, tossing, until slightly wilted, about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Add honey and 1/4 cup water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until greens are completely wilted, about 1 to 5 minutes, depending upon variety and tenderness. Transfer to dish(es) on top of chickpea mixture.
  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper; place fillets over greens and and drizzle lightly with oil. Bake until salmon is opaque in the center, 30–35 minutes.
  4. Whisk shallot, lemon juice, mustard, and honey in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir in rinsed capers.
