    This was fantastic! I was looking for another way to use salmon and thought this looked interesting. I substituted feta cheese for the goat cheese but did everything else as noted. The tomato dressing was a nice compliment and everyone in my family ate it (even my 4 and 6 yr old sons!). I really liked the combination of warm salmon in the salad.

    Real!ly great and easy I have made this several times with wild salmon. For company and for family.

    So summery and delicious! The tomato vinaigrette was extremely tasty and the Indian-esque salmon marinade worked well with it. The creamy goat cheese was the perfect counterpoint to the acidic tomato and savory salmon. Subbed walnuts for pine nuts. My boyfriend and I loved every bite. Word to the wise - high heat on my gas grill blackened my little salmon pieces after six minutes, but it was okay, as they were just as delicious - if a little crunchy. My bigger pieces were okay. Maybe I'd do four minutes per side on medium high heat.

    I have made this recipe several times, and it is a wonderful combination: delicious and easy. It's also a great dish to prepare for company because, aside from cooking the fish, you can do everything ahead of time. Since I don't have a grill, I simply put the salmon under the broiler for 3-4 minutes each side. I'm sure it would be even better grilled, but this works well. I really recommend sticking the the goat cheese, rather than substituting feta as some other reviewers recommend. The recipe is a perfect balance of sweet/spicy and acidic/creamy, and I feel you really need a mild, creamy cheese to maintain that balance.

    Very, very good. Uncomlicated recipe that has great flavor. Perfect for summer dinner. Both teen kids loved it too. I added a little bit of fresh lime juice, garlic powder and chopped avocado to the dressing/salad. Served with oven roasted potatoes seasoned with paprika, pepper, garlic, parsley with just a touch of bacon bits.. So good.

    This was a delicious way to serve salmon. Loved the whole thing and it was a hit with the husband and son. Just like eating at a fine restaurant but in the comfort of my own home. I will be making this dish again. The only thing i did different was use minced garlic in place of shallots in the vinaigrette. I did not serve anything else with the meal. The presentation was really nice too. My husband said it looked like I was a professional chef. That was a huge compliment because I am not a chef. If you like Salmon You Must Try this!

    This was fantastic! I had tomatoes from our garden so the vinagrette was fresh and flavorful! My husband loved it! We will definitely be making this again!

    My goodness, I can't believe I didn't review the one sooner! I've been making it for the past several months and my husband and I LOVE this recipe!! It is sooooo delicious and easy to put together. The only thing I tweaked was adding a little bit of sugar to the vinaigrette so it wasn't so tart. Other than that, this is THE perfect salmon salad. I used the spice rub (it's to die for) on salmon and grill it, serving it with veggies and quinoa for another option. A must try that is sure to become a favorite!
