From EatingWell: January/February 2010
Toss roasted vegetables and salmon with a flavor-packed vinaigrette to serve on top of greens for a hearty dinner salad. For a twist, add a poached or fried egg on top. Serve with: Toasted whole-grain baguette and a glass of Riesling.
- 6 cups cubed (1/2-inch) peeled root vegetables, such as potatoes, turnips, carrots and beets
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
- 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
- 1 teaspoon minced anchovy fillet or paste
- 8 cups mixed salad greens
- 2 6- to 7-ounce cans boneless, skinless wild Alaskan salmon, drained and flaked
- 2 scallions, sliced
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Toss root vegetables in a large bowl with 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Spread in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes. Stir and continue roasting until soft and golden brown in spots, 13 to 15 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, garlic, mustard, anchovy and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and salt in a large bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the dressing in small bowl. Add the salad greens to the large bowl and toss to combine; divide among 4 dinner plates.
