Grilled Salmon with seasonal salad and grilled beets

So if you have read my other blogs you would know I belong to a local farm CSA. Well this week share had some great organic in season vegetables. I incorporated some of them into my meal tonight.. and made a delicious season salad to top my grilled salmon. This meal has lots of different flavor and textures.

I love to grill all year round. My neighbors know this as they see me out there usually four to five times a week even in rain or snow. I have grilled lots of different vegetables but never tried grilling beets until tonight.  Grilling beets adds a great, smoky flavor.  After tonight I know I will be doing it more often!  I love to include some type of salad in my dishes.  This time I topped my salmon with the peppery goodness of radishes paired with a sweet apple and pea shoots.  I made this dish for the first time and it ended up working out great. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did.
