Mediterranean Salmon

What a great meal for a warm summer evening! Salmon on the grill with a no-salt herb marinade is a light and healthy dinner that doesn't have to be limited to summer dining. You can easily compliment this meal with some grilled or steamed veggies straight from the garden or local farmer's market. Salmon is low in calories and saturated fat yet high in protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. A super healthy choice for dinner!
