Grilled Salmon Sandwiches
This recipe builds your sandwich high by stacking a bed of mesclun greens and a thick cut of grilled salmon between two brioche buns. For a creamy finish, coat each side of the bun with her homemade sour cream-dill sauce. Dovetailing Tip: Grill enough salmon to have leftovers to use day 3 in Dijon Balsamic Salmon Cakes.

2 pounds fresh salmon fillets
good olive oil
freshly ground pepper
For the sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon white wine vinegar
12 fresh basil leaves
3/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped scallions, (white and green parts)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons capers, drained
6 fresh white or brioche rolls (4-inch round)
1/4 pound mesclun mix or fresh basil leaves
For the sauce, place the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, basil, dill, scallions, salt, and pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until combined. Add the capers and pulse 2 or 3 times.
To assemble the sandwiches, slice the rolls in 1/2 crosswise. Spread a tablespoon of sauce on each cut side. On the bottom 1/2, place some mesclun salad and then a piece of salmon. Place the top of the roll on the salmon and serve immediately.
