"If you can't think like an onion or a carrot or a tomato, you may be a technician, but you won't understand what you're doing, and your dish will be flat." -Eric Ripert
Using goat cheese and another flavoring, like mustard, to make the dressing is a simple technique that can work for any salad. Try some tomato paste, sun dried tomato paste, or tapenade, for example. The goat cheese blends well with the mustard (in this case) to create a great creamy dressing.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: about 2 cups salad
Cooking time: 45 minutes (does not include chilling time)

|2 tsp.||white wine vinegar|
|12 ounces||salmon filets|
|2 tsp.||olive oil|
|2 medium||onion (thinly sliced)|
|2||ears corn (cut kernels from the cob)|
|1/4 tsp.||dried tarragon|
|3 tsp.||Dijon mustard|
|2 ounces||goat cheese|
|1/2 medium||red bell pepper (diced)|
|1/2 medium||yellow bell pepper (diced)|
|4 ounces||raw cashews (coarsely chopped)|
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the water and vinegar in a large skillet over high heat.
When the water begins to boil, reduce the heat to keep it just below a simmer and add the salmon.
Poach the salmon for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet.
Remove the salmon to a plate, let cool, and then put in the refrigerator.
Rinse out the skillet, dry it, and place in the oven to heat for 5 minutes.
Add the olive oil and onion to the pan and return to the oven.
Roast the onions for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add the corn and tarragon. Cook for another 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
While the onions are cooking, place the mustard, goat cheese and salt in a large mixing bowl.
After the corn is cooked, add it to the mixing bowl.
Fold together with the goat cheese and mustard until blended and the cheese has melted.
Refrigerate until chilled.
Flake the poached salmon into the mixing bowl, add the red and yellow peppers and the cashews, and fold together.
