Grilled Salmon Nicoise Salad

Grilled Salmon Nicoise Salad | Umami GirlHappy summer Friday, my friends. It’s beach season and trashy novel season and summer movie season. It’s also Coho salmon season, and that’s something to celebrate. Wild salmon flash-freezes well and is a good choice all year round, but nothing beats fresh. So I really went for it with Grilled Salmon Niçoise Salad, a summery riff on the classic French dish, served family style on a big platter.

And I’ve loved Salade Niçoise for 30 years before that, ever since my mom used to make it for the two of us for lunch and call it Little Girl Salad for me and Big Girl Salad for her.
