Grilled salmon salad with potatoes and dill
Al Seib / Los Angeles Times

Grilled salmon is a family favorite, especially in spring, when Chinook (or king) salmon is in the markets. Grill steaks or filets that are 3/4- to 1-inch thick, allowing about 6 ounces per person for dinner, and save about 3/4 ... Read more

Total time: 1 hour | Serves 4
  • 12 baby red boiling potatoes
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound grilled salmon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 large bunch watercress

Step 1Place the potatoes in a saucepan, add cold water to cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons of salt, and reduce the heat so the water just simmers. Cook the potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and run them under cold water until cool enough to handle.

Step 2While the potatoes are cooking, whisk together the shallot, mustard, sugar, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Add pepper to taste.

Step 3Cut the potatoes into thin slices and place in a large salad bowl. Use a fork to flake the salmon into bite-size pieces. Add to the salad bowl along with the dill and avocado. Cut off and discard the tough stems of the watercress. Coarsely chop the rest and add to the salad bowl. Gently toss the salad with the dressing. Divide the salad among 4 plates. Serve immediately.
