Salmon insalata mista


When you go to an Italian restaurant, you will always see insalata mista among the contorni or side dishes. Insalata mista is nothing other than a garden salad, where different greens and other vegetables are mixed together. In this salad I combine two of my favorite Italian greens: arugula and radicchio. Add some oven-baked salmon to this insalata mista and you’ll have a complete light meal!

Ingredients
4 salmon filets (1 inch thick)
4 tsp mustard
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Arugula
Radicchio
Olive oil

Dressing
½ cup store-bought balsamic dressing
2 Tbsp mustard
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Mix the balsamic vinegar with 4 tsp mustard. Brush the salmon filets with this marinade. Drizzle the salmon filets with some olive oil and bake them in a 450F preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Mix the arugula with the shredded radicchio and put the greens onto a serving plate. On top set the salmon, cut into bite-size pieces. For the dressing of this salad, just go the quick and simple way: mix your favorite store-bought balsamic dressing with some mustard and lemon juice!
