Youâll notice in the video, I topped my salmon with an Autumn Salad. Itâs just mesclun greens, apples, dried cherries, pomegranate arils, and toasted pecans. I mixed it with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Itâs easy! Itâs so easy, you donât even need a recipe. Just grate a clove of garlic and mix it with a pinch of salt and pepper and a small spoonful of mustard. Then, add a spoonful of balsamic vinegar and mix in a few spoonfuls of good olive oil. Itâs THAT simple. Then, just put the salad right over top of the cooked salmon. It couldnât be easier!
