Balsamic Glazed Salmon Salad

It's pretty obvious that I love balsamic vinegar, based on the many, many recipes I post using it.  I always fall back on the same salmon recipe, so I was so excited to find this one.  It was SO GOOD.  Even better that it's on a salad and it's super healthy.  This is going to be my new go-to.

Balsamic Glazed Salmon Salad

1 lb salmon
salt and pepper
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
salad fixins (lettuce, cucumber, tomato, red onion, etc.)

Preheat oven to 450F.  Spray a foil-lined baking sheet with nonstick spray.  Season the salmon with a little salt and pepper and place on the baking sheet.  In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients.  Drizzle 1/3 of the dressing on to the salmon and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.  Meanwhile, toss together salad ingredients.  Serve salmon on top of salad and drizzle with remaining dressing.
