The summer calls for light and refreshing meals that don't weight you down like this delicious grilled salmon salad.  Salmon filets are grilled to perfection and then glazed with a honey balsamic sauce that is so easy to make, you'll want to put it on everything.  This recipe is very basic, composed of simply romaine lettuce and salmon.  You can always add more ingredients like potatoes or tomatoes to make for a heartier meal but you want the salmon to be the star.  Grilled salmon salad is a dish you'll be making all summer long.
