Lemon Marinated Salmon Salad

Pairing citrus and salmon is always a great combination but when you marinate the salmon in lemon it turns into a great idea!  You’ll find this salad served throughout the south of France all summer long!
Watch the short video for directions!

1 salmon fillet
2 lemons juiced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon baies roses
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 shallot
¼ teaspoon salt & a grating of fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
8 ounces baby salad greens
Thinly slice the salmon on the diagonal and place side by side on a serving platter
Cover with lemon juice
Drizzle with olive oil
Top with baies roses
Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes
Finely mince the shallot and add to the vinegar
Let rest for 5-10 minutes
Add the salt and pepper, mix until salt is dissolved
Add the Dijon mustard and whisk together
Slowly whisk in the olive oil, taste and add another tablespoon olive oil if necessary
Dress the salad greens with half the dressing, adding more if necessary
Divide the greens between four plates and top with 3 slices of salmon
