On a 12-inch plate, alternate radicchio and endive. Place romaine and mesclun in the center. Alternate green beans, egg, tomatoes, asparagus spears, and black olives around the lettuce. Dress with cider vinaigrette. Place salmon on top of greens; then place slices of red onion and fried capers on the salmon. Serves 1.

8 pounds sugar
1 cup pickling spice
Zest of 3 lemons
1/4 cup crushed black pepper
6 bay leaves
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 cup dried dill
1 teaspoon rosemary
2 teaspoons coriander, crushed
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
12 Juniper berries, crushed
8 sides Atlantic salmon filets, skin on, pin bones out (each fish about 6-8 pounds)
