  • 2 medium zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed

  • 5 - 6 tablespoons Charred Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette, divided

  • 1 ¼ pounds salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, divided


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Brush zucchini and asparagus with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Drizzle salmon with 2 teaspoons vinaigrette and sprinkle with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  3. Place the vegetables and the salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the grill. Grill the vegetables, turning a few times, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Grill the salmon, without turning, until it flakes with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Cut the vegetables into 3 or 4 pieces and place in a medium bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and toss to coat. Remove the skin from the salmon, if desired; serve the salmon alongside the vegetables. Drizzle the salmon with 1 tablespoon vinaigrette, if desired. (Refrigerate any remaining vinaigrette for up to 3 days.)

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
