Recently had this salad at a great Portland, OR restaurant. After finding a wonderful sweet balsamic vinaigrette recipe, by Zaar's Chef Fordido,#229445 I proceeded to prepare this salad twice this week.
Prepare the vinaigrette according to recipe #229445 by Chef Fordido.
Pour wine into medium sized frying pan, add the Old Bay seasoning, then gently place the salmon into the pan. Turning burner to high, poach the salmon for about 4 minutes, turning the heat to medium, as the cooking action becomes vigorous. Gently turn salmon over to poach for another 4 minutes. Do not over cook, lest the salmon becomes dry in flavor, rather then moist.
Meanwhile put all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette, mix throughly and allow flavors to mingle before plating the salad.
Place the salad on a plate, top with the poached salmon fillet. The salmon may be served warm, room temperature or cold. Enjoy!
