  • 2 ounces pine nuts
  • 5 cups mixed greens
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup scallions, sliced
  • 1 large orange, cut in 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed

Directions

  1. Heat a non-stick skillet, add pine nuts and stir until toasty, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, place all salad ingredients (reserve half of the cilantro and half of the pine nuts for garnish).
