1 cup chopped watercress or baby arugula
Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

For the dressing:

1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup neutral oil, such as grapeseed or canola
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon honey

4 6-ounce salmon fillets
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
