From the Test Kitchen

In this bright and refreshing dish, we’re serving flaky salmon over a gorgeous, delightfully textural salad of seasonal vegetables. Tender peas, arugula and red potato find delicious contrast in crunchy radish and sunflower seeds. And for an elegant finishing touch, we’re garnishing the salmon with lightly marinated pink lemon—a specialty variety with a rosy hue.
