Poaching salmon in wine gives it a lovely flavor; using the poaching liquid to make a vinaigrette is a delicious way to dress the salad.

2 shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup dill sprigs, plus more for garnish
1 pound skinless salmon fillet
2 cups semidry white wine, such as Riesling
1/4 cup prepared horseradish, drained
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons canola oil
Freshly ground white pepper
One 15-ounce can butter beans—drained, rinsed and patted dry
4 cups tender escarole leaves, torn
How to Make It
Put the shallots and dill sprigs in a saucepan and top with the salmon. Add the wine and 2 cups of water; bring to a boil. Simmer over very low heat until the salmon is nearly cooked through, 5 minutes; transfer to a plate and let cool slightly. Break the salmon into large flakes and freeze for 5 minutes to cool.
Meanwhile, strain the poaching broth, reserving 3 tablespoons of the broth and 2 tablespoons of the shallots; discard the dill. Chop the shallots and transfer to a large bowl. Add the horseradish and mayonnaise, then whisk in the reserved poaching broth and the oil and season with salt and pepper.
Add the butter beans and escarole to the dressing and toss. Add the salmon and toss gently. Garnish with chopped dill and serve.
