Pan-Seared Salmon with Mediterranean Salad

  • FAST
  1. 1 small fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
  2. 1 Belgian endive, sliced crosswise 1 inch thick
  3. 1 small head of radicchio, torn into bite-size pieces
  4. 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  5. 1/4 cup pitted Calamata olives, coarsely chopped
  6. 3 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  8. 1 garlic clove, minced
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. Four 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets
