  4. In a small bowl, mix together tomato-vegetable juice cocktail, vinegar, tomatoes, olive oil, and reserved spice mixture to make vinaigrette. Place salad greens in a large bowl, drizzle with vinaigrette, and toss to coat.
  5. Divide greens among individual serving plates. Top each plate with a salmon fillet, and spoon any remaining vinaigrette over the salmon.

The rub on salmon and chicken was very good. The dressing,however was kinda a bust. Tasted like V8 juice and needed allot of help if you asked me.

Great recipe that takes little time to prepare. I have used it for guests twice now, and even the pickiest eaters love it.

The spice on this was great! I cooked this on my George Foreman for about 4 minutes and it turned out really well.

I made the salmon (minus the greens and vinaigrette) and my family proclaimed "this is one of the best dinners you've ever made". There was not a smidge of salmon leftover...every morsel was eaten.

This salmon recipe is quite delicious. I have served this dish at two BBQ's and everyone has absolutely loved it. The combination of spices in the rub provide a nice kick to the salmon without overpowering the taste of the salmon.

The rub is very good. I'd skip the spice mix and most of the tomato-veg juice in the salad dressing. Just the oil and balsamic vinegar work just fine. The rub is a great salmon recipe whether on the greens or not.

I helped a friend make this dish. At first I was very skeptical. The dressing along was not all that great, but then you put it all together and it was fantastic. Instead of using the grill, my friend broiled the fillets for about 6-8 minutes.
