- 1 English Cucumber, Sliced
- 1 Cup Grape Tomatoes, Variety of Colors, Cut in Half

Grill salmon on a BBQ grill or prepare in the oven as follows:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and roast them skin-side down, on a lightly oiled sheet pan, for 10 or 12 minutes, or until they are just barely cooked through. Spoon barbeque sauce over each fillet and set aside.
For the dressing, in a small bowl combine lemon juice, honey, mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Whisk in the olive oil in a small stream until well combined.
Spoon quinoa onto serving a plate or platter, and scatter the greens and veggies around. Place the cooked salmon on top. Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with the feta cheese.
