1 pound fingerling potatoes
1/2 pound fresh green beans
1/2 pound fresh asparagus
4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon plus 1/3 cup red wine vinaigrette, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups fresh arugula or baby spinach
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
1. Cut potatoes lengthwise in half. Trim and cut green beans and asparagus into 2-in. pieces. Place potatoes in a 6-qt. stockpot; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes, adding green beans and asparagus during the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, brush salmon with 1 tablespoon vinaigrette; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fish on oiled grill rack, skin side down. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat or broil 4 in. from heat until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 6 to 8 minutes.
3. In a large bowl, combine potato mixture, arugula, tomatoes and chives. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette; toss to coat. Serve with salmon.
