This California-accented recipe seems perfect for a barbecue party on a warm, sultry, summer night!
 
The cool greens make a great setting for wild Alaskan salmon hot from a grill or broiler grate.
 
The walnuts add even more omega-3s to the salmon, while the fish, nuts, juice, chives, and the grapes abound in antioxidants.

Salmon ingredients
 4 Alaskan salmon fillet portions (4 to 6 oz each), thawed*
