This exquisite summer salad looks perfect on the plate as a one-course meal.


  • 1 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced in half rings
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, divided
  • 3 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1- 1/2 lbs salmon fillet, cut crosswise in 4 portions
  • 6 cups lettuce leaves in bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  • In a microwaveable cup, combine onion, red wine vinegar, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper; cover loosely with plastic wrap; microwave on high power for 1 minute. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until onions turn pink, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat grill or broiler. Brush 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on both sides of the salmon fillets; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Grill or broil salmon, skin side down, until just cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  • Divide lettuce leaves among 4 dinner plates; place salmon in the center. With a slotted spoon, remove onions from vinegar; scatter onions, along with the blueberries, over and around the fish. Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons of the olive oil into the vinegar mixture; drizzle vinaigrette over salmon.
