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. 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. 2. Grill pitas for about 45 seconds per side, or until lightly browned. Cut each into 4 wedges.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
