Ingredients

Cooking spray
4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas
8 ounces mixed salad greens
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
Vinaigrette:
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

1. Coat the grill with cooking spray, and heat to medium-high. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper, and grill 4 minutes on each side (skin side up first) or just until done. Remove skin; transfer fillets to a plate.

2. Grill pitas for about 45 seconds per side, or until lightly browned. Cut each into 4 wedges.

3. Divide salad among 4 plates, and top with goat cheese and salmon. Whisk vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl, and drizzle over greens. Top each salad with 2 pita crisps.

Wine note: The tangy goat cheese and smoky salmon in the salad echo the contrasting lime fruit and rich oakiness of a California Fumé Blanc. Look for the vibrant, melony-tasting Chateau St. Jean, around $13.
