Serve this dish with pinot noir. Briny olives, sweet grapes, and rich salmon match well with the wine's balance of earthiness and acidity. Substitute picholine or other green olives, if necessary.

good! ....with interesting flavors we love salmon and this is a fun/different/easy way to have it. I used regular olives w/ pimento, more leek than it called for and added some balsamic vinegar at the end too & reduced it a bit. seems pretty flexible.
