After a weekend of burgers and beers, opt for a lighter dinner menu tonight. Broiled salmon is quick, healthy, and scrumptious.

Served on a bed of wilted spinach dotted with creamy feta crumbles, this dish is perfectly balanced in both flavor and texture. Pine nuts add a necessary crunch that complements the plump, flaky fish, chewy greens, and tangy cheese.
