This is a variation of one of my favorite main-meal salads from a local Indianapolis restaurant. My husband loves it!
Great way to use the end of season summer bounty!

How to Make Roasted Salmon Salad / Caramelzied Tomatoes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread tomatoes and garlic in skins on baking sheet and toss in olive oil,salt and pepper. Bake for one hour and reduce heat to 200 degrees turning tomatoes once or twice
    for 2 more hours until good and caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside. Tomatoes should have released their juices and be slightly browned.
  2. While tomatoes are roasting, prepare the vinaigrette. Boil the corn in a pot of salted water for about 2 minutes, remove to an ice bath to immediately stop the cooking so the corn keeps it crunch. Drain when cooled and remove the corn from the cob with a corn zipper or a sharp knife.
    Whisk together balsamic vinegar with dijon mustard. Slowly add the olive oil and whisk until emulsified.
    Season with salt and pepper.
  3. When tomatoes have finished cooking, increase the heat to 400 degrees. Transfer the tomatoes to a plate and roast the salmon on the same pan, brushing the top with salt and pepper and a little olvie oil. Roast for 10 minutes or until salmon is opaque in the center, careful not to overcook.
  4. Now start to build your salad. Start with the romaine lettuce, chopped avocado, strips of fresh corn, and cannelini beans. Toss these ingredients in the vinaigrette. Plate the salad and put the salmon fillet on top, crowning it with the caramalized tomato topping. You can garnish with a few chopped green onions if desired.
