  4. 1 fresh ear of corn
  5. 1/2 bunch scallions
  6. 1 wild salmon filet
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  8. Coarse salt
  9. 1 head butter lettuce
  10. 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  11. 6 fresh basil leaves
  12. 1/2 lime, sliced

  3. 2 tablespoons light agave nectar 
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  5. Coarse salt
  6. Black pepper, freshly ground

Directions

  1. Make the salad: Steam or boil beets until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Let cool, then peel and cut into a medium dice.
  2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-low heat. Rub zucchini, corn, scallions, and salmon with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Grill vegetables and fish until browned and cooked through, being sure to flip once. This should take about 20 minutes.
  4. Cut zucchini and scallions into a medium dice. Cut corn off the cob, and break salmon into large pieces.
  5. Make the dressing: Whisk vinegar with agave nectar and lime juice in a bowl. Slowly whisk in oil; add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Assemble the salad: Toss grilled vegetables with lettuce, tomatoes, and basil. Place on a large platter, and top with salmon. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, and serve with lime wedges.
