Salmon and Vegetable Salad

Ingredients:
1 pound fingerling potatoes
½ pound fresh green beans or wax beans
½ pound fresh asparagus
4 salmon fillets (6 to 8 oz each)
1 tablespoon plus 1/3 cup red wine vinaigrette, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cups fresh arugula or baby spinach
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives

Directions:
Cut potatoes lengthwise in half.  Trim and cut the green or wax beans and asparagus into 2 inch pieces.  Place the potatoes in a 6 qt stockpot; add water to cover.  Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until tender, adding beans and asparagus during the last 4 minutes of cooking.  Drain.
Meanwhile, brush salmon with 1 tablespoon vinaigrette; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Lightly oil grill grate to prevent sticking.  Place fish on rack, skin side down.  Grill, covered 6-8 minutes or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork and separates from the skin.
In a large bowl, combine potato mixture, arugula or spinach, tomatoes and chives.  Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette; toss to coat.  Serve with salmon.
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 mango, peeled, pitted & cubed
1 avocado, pitted, peeled & cubed
½ red onion, finely chopped
cilantro, fresh chopped
1 lime, juiced, plus wedges for garnish
salt & ground black pepper
Canola oil
8 corn tortillas
1 ½ pounds tilapia fillets
1 tablespoon blackening spice
2 cups finely shredded red cabbage

Directions:
Mix the mango, avocado, onion and the juice of one lime in a bowl.  Season with cilantro, salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium high heat.  Drizzle a light coating of oil over the fish and rub on the blackening spice.  Cook the fish, undisturbed, for four minutes.  Carefully flip with a spatula and cook for another four minutes.  Remove from heat.
Warm the tortillas on the grill for one to two minutes or wrap in damp paper towels and microwave for one minute until warm and pliable.
