Spring Fling

s I write this, the promise of spring looms on the calendar and in the air. I wore long underwear and fleece for so many days this winter I lost count. It is time to put away the heavy clothes—and the heavy dishes of winter as well. April means serving lighter flavors and fewer calories. This salmon with vegetables and dill is easy to prepare, good for you and flavorful. The ingredients are listed without amounts so this dish can be sized with as many vegetables or ounces of salmon as desired.
