- ¼ cup olive oil, plus more for brushing baguette and oiling grates
- 1½ tbsp. honey
- 6-7 oz. fresh blueberries, divided
- 3 tbsp. white wine vinegar
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 salmon fillets (about 5-6 oz. each)
- 1 medium yellow onion, sliced into ½-thick slabs (rings intact)
- 1 demi baguette, thinly sliced on the bias
- About 6-8 cups mixed salad greens
- 2-3 oz. honeyed goat cheese

Heat a grill t0 medium-high. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the ¼ cup olive oil, honey and 4 ounces of the fresh blueberries. Heat over medium, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries are releasing their juices, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and puree until smooth with an immersion blender or the small bowl of a food processor. Reserve 3 tablespoons of this mixture for brushing the salmon pieces. Add the white wine vinegar to the remaining blueberry mixture and whisk until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Brush the salmon pieces evenly with the reserved blueberry mixture on the skinless side of the fillets. Brush both sides of the onion slabs lightly with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Once the grill is heated, thoroughly oil the grates with additional olive oil. Place the salmon pieces on the grill, skin side down first. Also add the onion slabs to the grill. Let the salmon cook until the skin is crisp and darkened. Carefully flip once so that the glaze side is down. Flip the onions once during cooking, so that both sides get nicely browned. Continue to cook the salmon until the glaze side is blackened and the internal temperature registers 135˚ F on an instant-read thermometer. Once finished, carefully remove to a plate and let rest.

While the salmon is cooking, prep the remaining items for the grill. Lay the baguette slices out on a platter. Brush both sides lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Once the salmon and onion slices have been removed from the grill, add the baguette slices in a single layer. Grill, flipping once, until both sides are browned, about 1-2 minutes total. Remove to a cutting board and coarsely chop for croutons. Chop the onions as well.

Divide the greens among serving plates. Top each serving with a sprinkle of additional fresh blueberries, some of the grilled onions, grilled baguette pieces, honeyed goat cheese, a piece of salmon and a drizzle of the blueberry vinaigrette. Serve immediately.
