Elegant and easy salmon with roasted vegetables

Salmon and Roasted Vegetables Over Arugula

This thoroughly delightful mix of colors and flavors came together lickety split for a few reasons: The salmon and the vegetables roasted in the same oven for the same amount of time, and the marinade for the salmon was the same as the dressing for the arugula. The roasted vegetables served to wilt most of the arugula and partially wilted and partially fresh greens added a nice dimension to this beautiful dish.
