  • Prep time: 19 Minutes
  • Other: 10 Minutes


  • 3 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 pound small red potatoes, quartered

Combine mustard, vinegar, honey, 1 teaspoon oil, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.

. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, kosher salt, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 10 minutes.

. While fish marinates, place potato and whole eggs in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove eggs and plunge into cold water. Cook potato 5 minutes; add green beans. Simmer 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove potato and beans, and plunge into cold water; drain. Peel eggs, and slice each into 6 wedges; set aside.

. Prepare grill.

. Place fish, skin sides down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill, covered, 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove skin from fish, and cut fish into chunks.

. Combine spinach, olives, tomato, and onion in a large bowl; add vinaigrette, potato, and beans, and toss to combine. Arrange salad evenly on plates, and top evenly with fish and eggs.
