Grilled Salmon Salad
For a cool summer supper, try this fresh-tasting salmon salad, created by our Test Kitchen staff. Lightly dressed with tangy raspberry vinegar, it gets a little crunch from onion and celery.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar

- Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
