In a kind of updated homage to Swiss rosti, this light salad combines things we love: a bed of crispy potatoes, some delicious fish, flavorful greens and a perk-you-up dressing.

That's been my problem with so many of these meal plans. They're fine if you're at home during the day and can stop what you're doing to cook but how many of us can do that these days?

Loved this recipe. I cheated and purchased potato pancakes (latkes) at Wegman's and used fresh salmon lightly sauteed. Susan Cinnaminson NJ Read More

Loved the recipe but I substituted fresh salmon for the canned and cooked it lightly before proceeding with the recipe. My kids loved it! Jana Wilson Bloomington IN Read More
