I kept the dressing on the side for more control. Also I used crisp white wine in the dressing instead of water. What did water ever do except boil pasta? I put the salmon on top of the salad and sprinkled dill on top of it. That was so I could have it the next without the salmon taking over. Healthy salad; good use for leftover grilled salmon.
