  • ¼ cup sliced cremini mushrooms
  • ¼ cup diced eggplant
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinaigrette, divided (see Tip)
  • ¼ cup cooked Israeli couscous, preferably whole-wheat
  • 4 ounces cooked salmon
  • ¼ cup sliced dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese ( ½ ounce)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Coat a small skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and eggplant; cook, stirring, until lightly browned and juices have been released, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Toss spinach with 1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vinaigrette and place on a 9-inch plate.
  3. Toss couscous with the remaining 2 tsp. vinaigrette and place on top of the spinach. Place salmon on top. Top with the cooked vegetables, dried apricots, and goat cheese.
  • Tip: To make a quick white-wine vinaigrette, whisk 2 Tbsp. white-wine vinegar with ⅛ tsp. each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil until blended. Extra dressing will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before using.
