Simple baked salmon with raspberry-pepper dressed greens

Blueberry balsamic vinaigrette

Looks like a smoothie, right? I served this vinaigrette over spicy greens and grilled salmon. What to do with the rest? I’m thinking a salad with chicken and goat cheese, or perhaps even as a dip with a cheese and baguette plate?

Herbal balsamic vinaigrette

I serve this dressing drizzled over fresh beet greens, roasted beets, and toasted walnuts. Use whatever herbs you have — dill, mint and tarragon might also be nice.
