4 salmon portions
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Balsamic Dressing:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 tablespoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 medium cucumber diced
1 pint grape tomatoes halved
1/2 small red onion sliced
