    Directions

    01

    In large saucepan with boiling water, blanch peas and beans. Drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Thoroughly drain and blot dry. Place in large serving bowl along with baby greens. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and set aside.

    02

    In straight-sided sauteu0301 pan large enough to hold salmon in a single layer, heat vegetable broth. Gently place salmon fillets in simmering broth and poach for 5 to 7 minutes or until cooked medium rare. Remove with slotted spatula to separate plate.

    03

    In small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and whisk until emulsified. Dressing can be refrigerated for several days. When ready to use, vigorously whisk and drizzle over greens. Gently toss to coat. Immediately serve with poached salmon.
