Salmon’s rich flavor need not compete with several taste elements on the same plate. Accenting salmon with a little acidity from the Dill-Shallot Vinaigrette and swaying this acidity by introducing a tangy Lemon-Mint Couscous provides a refreshing summer meal, balanced with flavor that tastes natural, not difficult.
