Servings 6


  • 20 oz salmon fillets, cut into 4-5 fillets, patted dry
  • 5 oz baby salad greens
  • 1 lb baby yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 12 oz fresh green beans
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted


  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive brine
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar


  • Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 425˚ F.
  • Eggs: Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the eggs to the boiling water; cook 9 minutes. Remove and transfer to the ice water; set aside.
  • Potatoes: Toss the potatoes in a bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the potatoes to the hot baking sheet. Bake until browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes.
  • Green beans and olives: Add the green beans and olives to the bowl that held the potatoes. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. After the potatoes have browned, add the green beans and olives on top of them.
  • Salmon: Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Place the fillets on top of the vegetables and bake until the fish is just cooked through and easily flakes with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Dressing: Whisk together the mustard, olive brine, vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl. Combine the salad greens and tomatoes in a large bowl; toss lightly with some dressing.
  • Divide the salad among plates. Top with the fish, tomatoes, potatoes, green beans and olives. Peel and slice the hard-boiled eggs and add to the salads. Drizzle with the additional dressing.
