Field Greens with Salmon and Citrus-Dijon Vinaigrette

Recipes to do

Here is a long overdue recipe for a great dinner salad.  This was adapted from a recipe for Field Greens with Shrimp and Mustard-Balsamic Vinaigrette that was great.  We want to have a few different salads on our regular rotation, and love the idea of having more salmon.  This was very easy to make, but we would like to have salads a few nights a week - so having different  that we created   We want to make more salads for dinner and this will definitely be on a quick rotation.  Very easy (even with making your own dressing).  The best part is that it is pretty healthy, so great for those weight loss resolutions!
